Résumé :

"The last 20 years have brought unprecedented new knowledge to our understanding of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and for the first time, approved symptomatic treatments. Authored by one of the world's leading authorities on the management of AD and related dementias, this highly illustrated Atlas of Alzheimer's Disease describes the colorful history of the illness, its neuropathological basis from structural brain imaging and post-mortem studies, and its devastating effects on perception, cognition, communication, and social behavior.

In addition to an accurate and detailed historical perspective, the book provides a state-of-the-art review of current working hypotheses, diagnostic approaches, and treatments of AD. Many tables and illustrations help readers comprehend the scientific information provided, and the book places great emphasis on the increasingly identifiable risk factors for development of the disease, with a view towards prevention."
