This new edition of The Behavioral Neurology of Dementia provides clinicians and researchers with the latest research findings written by the leading dementia experts. With chapters ranging from cognitive evaluation to imaging, and genetics and pathology to treatment, the detailed clinical descriptions of diseases and symptoms serve not only as an educational tool for trainees, but also as an opportunity for experienced clinicians to deepen their knowledge and better serve their patients. After years of little progress, the pace of discovery has been speeding up in the last decade, and the authors distil the most valuable discoveries into clear, insightful chapters with applicable information. All the chapters from the first edition have been refreshed with new text and figures. There are new chapters on autoimmune antibody-associated encephalopathy; chronic traumatic encephalopathy; and sleep issues in dementia.
