9780521413930: Dementia and Normal Aging

This book reviews the latest scientific research and seeks to establish whether dementia, particularly Alzheimer's disease, is distinct from the normal aging process or on a continuum with normal aging. With contributions from leading neurobiologists, psychologists, clinicians, and epidemiologists, this volume makes a major advance in the understanding of dementia and the aging mind and brain. It also has wide implications for areas as diverse as dementia research strategy, treatment and prevention, social attitudes, and health policy.

Book Description:

A challenging work covering areas which will have far reaching implications for the study of dementia and the mind itself. As a review of current thinking and research it will serve as an essential text for clinicians and scientific investigators alike.

Review:

"...The historical section is outstanding...The epidemiological, diagnostic, and neuropsychological sections are lucid and easily accessible to nonexperts, usually avoiding the jargon that sometimes plagues writing in these areas...a well-edited, intelligently written, and accessible book...strongly recommended." Bruce L. Miller, Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease

"...a rich and thorough discussion of many of the clinical, cognitive, and neuropathological characteristics of normal ageing and dementia, particularly Alzheimer's disease...." Lancet

"...I enjoyed reading this well-produced book, written in an easy style, with its chapters following a logical pattern. I recommend it to the targeted audience of clinicians and scientific investigators." John deVries, Canadian Journal of Psychiatry

"With contributions from leading neurobiologists, psychologists, clinicians, and epidemiologists, this book makes an important contribution to the understanding of these and other aspects of dementia....[T]his is a challenging work in its breadth and in the level of its argument, which has far-reaching implications for the study of dementia and, indeed, of the mind itself. As a review of current thinking and research, it will serve as an essential text for clinicians and scientific investigators, and it will also stimulate further inquiry and debate in areas as diverse as research strategy, treatment and prevention, social attitudes and health policy."
