The Dementias Hope Through Research Revised December 2017 Book Review:

Dementia is the loss of cognitive functioning?the ability to think, remember, or reason?to such an extent that it interferes with a person's daily life and activities. These functions include memory, language skills, visual perception, problem solving, self-management, and the ability to focus and pay attention. Some people with dementia cannot control their emotions, and their personalities may change. Dementia ranges in severity from the mildest stage, when it is just beginning to affect a person's functioning, to the most severe stage, when the person must depend completely on others for basic activities of daily living. Age is the primary risk factor for developing dementia. For that reason, the number of people living with dementia could double in the next 40 years as the number of Americans age 65 and older increases from 48 million today to more than 88 million in 2050. Regardless of the form of dementia, the personal, economic, and societal demands can be devastating.

The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Alzheimer Disease and Other Dementias Book Review:

The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Alzheimer Disease and Other Dementias is an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of dementia for psychiatrists and other health care practitioners who deal with cognitively impaired adults in outpatient, inpatient, and long-term care settings. With content ranging from clinical guidance to basic research, it contains information on nearly every subject related to dementing conditions or illnesses -- not only providing extensive coverage of clinical management issues but also enabling a deeper understanding of the causes of dementia. Designed to assist the practitioner faced with everyday dilemmas, from dosages of antipsychotic drugs to legal and ethical issues, this textbook describes in detail the most common conditions and diseases leading to dementia and covers pharmacologic, behavioral, and environmental treatments. It also considers a broader range of cognitive disorders and impairment in order to help practitioners recognize and treat primary brain diseases and systemic disorders affecting the brain before they reach the stage of dementia. Building on the editors' earlier work The Dementias: Diagnosis, Treatment, and Research, this new book expands on its scope, with nearly twice the number of contributors -- all clinicians or researchers at the vanguard of the field. New to this edition are chapters on epidemiology, history of dementia, biomarkers for Alzheimer disease, care of the late-stage dementia patient, prevention of dementia, and chapters devoted to: Vascular cognitive impairment, emphasizing the importance of early detection with development of appropriate treatments and risk factor control Dementia with Lewy bodies and other synucleinopathies, describing differences in cognitive profile between synucleinopathies and Alzheimer disease Frontotemporal dementias, including behavioral and language variants Traumatic brain injury, distinguishing between proximal and distal effects and risk factors for dementia later in life An abundance of charts and illustrations, extensive references and additional readings, and chapter-end key points make this a practical volume for learning, while appendixes include easily administered instruments useful in daily practice for grading cognition, day-to-day function, neuropsychiatric symptoms, and quality of life. Whether used as a clinical guide or as a sourcebook on technical and scientific developments, The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Alzheimer Disease and Other Dementias is an important reference for psychiatrists, neurologists, geriatricians, primary care physicians, and other health professionals who deal with cognitively impaired adults.

Frontotemporal Disorders Information for Patients Families and Caregivers Revised February 2017 Book Review:

Few people have heard of frontotemporal disorders, which lead to dementias that affect personality, behavior, language, and movement. These disorders are little known outside the circles of researchers, clinicians, patients, and caregivers who study and live with them. Although frontotemporal disorders remain puzzling in many ways, researchers are finding new clues that will help them solve this medical mystery and better understand other common dementias. The symptoms of frontotemporal disorders gradually rob people of basic abilities?thinking, talking, walking, and socializing?that most of us take for granted. They often strike people in the prime of life, when they are working and raising families. Families suffer, too, as they struggle to cope with the person's daily needs as well as changes in relationships and responsibilities.

Case Studies in Dementia Book Review:

"The first edition focused on the classical presentations of typical and atypical dementias. We included cases of Alzheimer's disease associated with congophilic amyloid angiopathy, posterior cortical atrophy, behavioral presentation of Alzheimer's disease and mixed pathology cases between Alzheimer's and Vascular dementia. We also included Post-stroke and Vascular dementia following surgery with a Kluver Bucy syndrome. On the spectrum of frontotemporal dementia, we included cases of the behavioral variant, semantic dementia, progressive non-fluent aphasia and dementia with motor neuron disease. The first edition also included a case of Lewy body dementia and Huntington disease. Particularly regarding transmissible dementia, we included dementias cases secondary to Neurosyphilis, HIV, a Heidenhain variant of Creutzfeldt-Jakob-Disease and a Gerstmann-Straussler-Scheinker disease. Finally, the book finished with a section with dementias secondary to major depression, ethanol, and toxic encephalopathy as well as a case of adult polyglucosan body disease, a disorder characterized by a deficiency of the glycogen-branching enzyme, as well as a patient with dementia due to mitochondriopathy. This second edition incorporates advances in biomarkers and genetics. The book includes a rationale for defining typical and atypical dementia and an introduction to biomarkers for investigating atypical cases. Subsequently, a chapter provides insights regarding care planning to dementia. On the spectrum of Alzheimer's disease, we included a typical case of dementia due to Alzheimer's disease corroborated by biomarkers, a biomarker-based preclinical Alzheimer's disease, and a case of cognitive decline associated with neurofibrillary tanglepredominant dementia. As focal cortical syndromes, this edition includes cases of frontal variant due to Alzheimer's disease. There are cases of behavioral variant of frontotemporal degeneration due to C09orf75, MAPT17, progranulin, CHR3 and TARDBP mutations. The present edition also includes a case of Posterior Cortical Atrophy and an intriguing association between Posterior Cortical Atrophy with logopenia. Regarding language presentations, there are cases of Primary Progressive Apraxia of Speech as well as Agrammatic, Semantic and Logopenic presentations of Primary Progressive Aphasia. There is also an interesting case illustrating alexia without agraphia associated with Pick's disease. A number of chapters illustrate dementia syndromes with motor manifestation such as Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, Lewy body dementia,Multiple System Atrophy, Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus as well as Wilson's and Parkinson's disease. We included two cases of dementia following infarcts. Regarding prion disease, the reader will have the opportunity to contrast a Creutzfeldt-Jakob-Disease and Fatal Familial Insomnia. We added a case of paraneoplastic and a case of Hashimoto's encephalopathy for illustrating autoimmune causes of dementia. The differential diagnosis of psychiatric conditions and dementia is exemplified in a case describing a patient with bipolar disorder. The book finishes with an appendix with the updated diagnostic criteria of the typical and atypical cases presented in this second edition. We hope that this appendix would certainly streamline the learning process for students and residents. We would like to express our gratitude to all authors who contributed with cases and for their diligence and patience. We also would like to thank the suggestions received by numerous other colleagues and the incredible work of Monica Shin, MSc., who kindly volunteered to assist on the edition of this volume. Finally, we expect that the cases presented in this book would serve as an inspiration for the next generation of researchers and health professionals devoted to advance dementia care and treatments"--

Neuropsychological Tools for Dementia Book Review:

Neuropsychological Tools for Dementia: Differential Diagnosis and Treatment takes a unique approach by combining the neuroscientific background of neuropsychology, neuropsychological tools for diagnosis and disease staging, and neuropsychological treatment into one comprehensive book for researchers and clinicians. Sections present an introduction to neuropsychological assessment in dementias, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and Lewy body dementia (alpha-synucleinopathies), atypical Parkinson’s diseases (tauopathies), language and behavioral variants of frontotemporal lobe degeneration, and normal pressure hydrocephalus. Each chapter elucidates the point that neuropsychological measures provide the tools to differentiate disease-specific impairments from normal age-related cognitive decline, and from other neurodegenerative diseases. Moreover, the book discusses the possibility of helping patients through neuropsychological intervention. Case studies aid in the reader’s comprehension of the field, and two short guidelines for each disease’s specific assessment and treatment prepare readers for handling real-life patients. Includes epidemiological information regarding dementia Demonstrates the use of neuropsychological tests and screening tools in diagnosing and differentiating patients with dementia Outlines which investigation strategy and neuropsychological tests work best for assessing patients for different neurodegenerative diseases Reviews specific interventions to slow the progress of dementia wherever possible Discusses the neuropathology, diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease

The Dementias Book Review:

Dementia, technically defined as cognitive impairments sufficiently pervasive and severe enough that they disrupt independent life, is one of the most devastating symptoms of neurologic disease. While Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common neurodegenerative disease that causes it, more than 50 medical, psychiatric, and neurological conditions are associated with dementia. Well organized and expertly planned, this text provides new concepts of patient management that have come about through recent neuroscience research. This volume, reviewing the dementias with the needs of the clinician in mind, is unique in that the section dealing with disease mechanisms reviews the exciting recent scientific advance in regard to Alzheimer disease, whereas the clinical section(section A) focuses not on Alzheimer disease but upon related disorders, the less common dementing syndromes due to other neurodegenerative disorders. The editors of this Blue Book have brought together an extraordinary group of experts to define the scientific advances primarily in Alzheimer's disease (section B) and new treatments (section C) being developed. * Written for non-expert general neurologists and residents * Provides new concepts of patient management discovered in neuroscience research * Includes unique coverage of recent scientific advances in Alzheimer's Disease

Care Giving In Dementia 2 Book Review:

Care-giving in dementia is a new speciality with its own rapidly growing body of knowledge. This second volume of contributions from leading practitioners and researchers around the world is a handbook for all those involved in hands on caring, or in planning care, for persons with dementia. Volume 2 of Care-Giving in Dementia provides a rich source of information on most recent thinking about individualised long-term care of both dementia sufferers and their families. Key themes in Volume 2 are: the subjective experience of dementia the provision of care for family carers differing cultural perspectives of dementia the crucial importance of life-history information for understanding a person's reaction to their illness. Chapters on the search for an ethical framework and the best environment within which to provide care are particularly timely.
