Geriatric Neurology

Geriatric Neurology, Volume 152 serves as an update on the basic biological and behavioral mechanisms underlying the aging process, with an emphasis on neurological aging and state-of-the-art reviews on our understanding of the vascular, cognitive, neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric diseases in the elderly. The demographic aging of society has increased attention on all of these topics, and research in geriatrics and neurodegenerative diseases has resulted in a massive amount of new basic and clinical knowledge of the aging nervous system, the cellular bases of brain aging, and explication of mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases. The cognitive changes associated with normal aging, the fundamentals and rationale for cognitive and neuropsychological assessment in the elderly, and the neurological examination and its focus in the older patients are accompanied by some of the broader issues of concern to geriatrics: the epidemiology of aging, the interactions between neurological diseases and medical co-morbidities in the elderly, models of care and prevention of aging-associated diseases. Developed with an eye to providing both the basic underpinnings of age-related changes and the clinical information to aid with diagnostics and treatment, the book serves as a useful volume for students, basic and translational scientists, and practicing clinicians in understanding and treating common neurological disorders in the elderly. Reviews foundations of geriatric neurology, including the fundamentals of age associated changes in molecular biology, altered pharmacokinetics and psychopharmacology that make drug therapy in the elderly different from younger patients Contains major advances in our understanding of neurodegenerative diseases that are discussed in detail Edited work featuring leaders in geriatric neurology around the globe - the broadest, most expert coverage available
