Oxford textbook of cognitive neurology and dementia
Part of the Oxford Textbooks in Clinical Neurology series
Now in paperback, the Oxford Textbook of Cognitive Neurology and Dementia covers the dramatic developments that have occurred in the basic neuroscience and clinical research in both cognitive neurology and dementia in an integrated fashion.
The text is firmly based on the clinical approach to the patient with cognitive impairment and dementia, while also providing the essential background scientific knowledge that is fundamental to clinical practice. Divided into three main sections, this book combines the basic science (Section 1) with different types of cognitive deficit or neuropsychological presentation (Section 2), and disease specific chapters (Section 3). With contributions from a range of international experts, this is essential reading for clinicians with an interest in cognition and dementia including neurologists, geriatricians and psychiatrists.
It provides a powerful means of bringing together different aspects of conceptual understanding and factual knowledge, in a way that usually can only come after many years in the field.
