Summary
"This book addresses assessment, comorbidity, evaluation, and treatment of various forms of dementia. It reviews common dementias including Alzheimer's disease, Lewy body disease, vascular dementia, frontotemporal dementia, and other less common dementias. The book is organized into sections discussing diagnosis, epidemiology, and neurobiology (including neuropathology and neuroimaging); assessment, including cultural issues, methodology, and neuropsychology; and primary, secondary, and tertiary intervention strategies. It is intended as a resource for all psychologists and other health professionals that serve persons and families impacted by neurodegenerative disease. The first section of the book provides a brief description on contemporary research criteria for dementia, epidemiology of dementia and mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and the neuropathology of dementia. It also discusses traumatic brain injury and repetitive brain trauma, and brain imaging in dementia and antecedent conditions. The second section addresses neuropsychological assessment of cognition in African American, Chinese and Chinese-American, and Spanish-speaking older adults. It then discusses clinical neuropsychology of frontotemporal dementia, vascular dementia, and HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders. The third section describes social and behavioral factors associated with risk of developing dementia; the effects of physical activity on cognition, dementia risk, and brain health; and cognitive remediation approaches and dementia prevention. It then discusses evidence supporting common cognitive rehabilitation techniques in cognitively symptomatic older adults, and memory compensation in MCI and dementia. It also describes treatment of comorbidities in dementia, sleep in MCI and Dementia, person-centered care as treatment for dementia, and palliative and end-of-life care in the context of dementia."--Preface.
