About this title

Synopsis:

While depression is one of the most prevalent psychiatric disorders in the general population, it also has a particularly high incidence among patients with neurologic illness. As many as half of all stroke victims, for example, have been found to be depressed. In addition, depression may accompany such disorders as Alzheimer's disease, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, and closed head injury. And recent studies have shown that the rehabilitation of patients with depression is significantly less successful than that of patients who are not depressed. In this book, the authors bring together a wide range of information to help clinicians identify and treat depression that accompanies neurologic disorders. After an introductory discussion of methodology, each chapter examines the implications of depression for a particular neurologic disease. In each of these chapters, the authors discuss the frequency of depression, methods of diagnosis, associated variables (that is, how depression influences a patient's cognitive functions and daily activities), the pathogenesis of depression, and treatment. Concluding chapters examine neuro-imaging and the dementia of depression in neurologic disorders. The book should be of particular interest to psychiatrists, psychologists, neurologists, and geriatricians.

Review:

"This is a collection of state-of-the-art reviews of depression in selected neurological disorders. The editors, pioneering leaders in this relatively new field, have produced a volume of high theoretical quality and clinical utility." -- Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
