The Neuropsychology of Cortical Dementias addresses in depth the neuropsychological impact and features of the full range of cortical dementias. It examines the differential neuropathological and pathophysiological bases of these dementias and emphasizes their behavioral and cognitive aspects in assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. The book also presents the most advanced techniques and strategies for disease-specific treatment. Important legal/ethical issues and the role of caregivers in treating dementia patients are also covered.

Featuring contributions from such diverse disciplines as neuropsychology, neurology, psychiatry, and clinical psychology, this volume provides a broad interdisciplinary perspective for practicing clinical neuropsychologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, gerontologists, and psychologists who work with patients with dementia.

Key Features:

  • Includes comprehensive, clinically focused coverage of all major cortical dementias
  • Covers neuroanatomy, assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and management of dementia patients, as well as legal and ethical issues
  • Discusses assessment and diagnosis from the perspectives of neuroimaging and cognitive and behavioral symptoms
  • Discusses a range of interventions (pharmacological, cognitive behavioral, etc.) and management issues related to dementia treatment
  • Informed by contributions from such diverse disciplines as neuropsychology, neurology, psychiatry, and clinical psychology
