Summary : Dementia is one of the most pressing problems that currently faces planners and providers of health care today. This has resulted in an explosion in research activity with the consequent growth of knowledge about all aspects of dementia and in particular about Alzheimer's disease. This book summarizes current knowledge of the neuropsychology of dementia, highlights the multifaceted nature of the problem, and argues that an input from neuropsychologists can facilitate the advances made by other neuroscientists investigating dementia. The book shows that the study of dementia has caused something of a paradigm shift within neuropsychology itself as a scientific discipline.

Summary : This up-to-date, superbly illustrated book is a practical guide to the effective use of neuroimaging in the patient with cognitive decline. It sets out the key clinical and imaging features of the various causes of dementia and directs the reader from clinical presentation to neuroimaging and on to an accurate diagnosis whenever possible. After an introductory chapter on the clinical background, the available "toolbox" of structural and functional neuroimaging techniques is reviewed in detail, including CT, MRI and advanced MR techniques, SPECT and PET, and image analysis methods. The imaging findings in normal ageing are then discussed, followed by a series of chapters that carefully present and analyze the key findings in patients with dementias. Throughout, a practical approach is adopted, geared specifically to the needs of clinicians (neurologists, radiologists, psychiatrists, geriatricians) working in the field of dementia, for whom this book will prove an invaluable resource.

Summary : Alzheimer's Disease and dementia are often used as blanket terms to describe any state of confusion in the elderly. They are often wrongly regarded as the inevitable results of growing old. In fact, problems such as memory loss, disorientation and difficulties in communication are frequently the symptoms of illnesses that can be treated effectively after prompt diagnosis.

Summary : Dementias are brain disorders that impair memory, thinking, and behavior, and Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common form, affecting 50 to 60 percent of dementia patients. Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias provides helpful clarification of this group of diseases and their specific types. Readers will learn how to recognize the symptoms of dementia or Alzheimer's disease, how these disorders are diagnosed, the latest theories about their cause, and how they can be treated. The book also directs attention to current research on the subject, the outlook for future prevention and treatment, and resources providing further information.

Summary : This book describes the latest modalities such as tau PET imaging for diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, and also provides information on handling and analyzing imaging data that is not found in other books. In addition, it introduces routine imaging studies in the management of dementia in Japan. The prevalence of dementia has increased over the past few decades, either because of greater awareness and more accurate diagnosis, or because increased longevity has created a larger population of the elderly, the age group most commonly affected. Although only clinical assessment can lead to a diagnosis of dementia, neuroimaging in dementia is recommended by most clinical guidelines, and its adjunct role has traditionally been to exclude a mass lesion rather than to support a specific diagnosis. Neuroimaging may be also helpful for developing new strategies to achieve diagnoses as early as possible for therapies aimed at slowing the progression of neurodegenerative diseases manifesting dementia. Under these conditions, all clinicians and researchers who are involved in neuroimaging for dementia should decide which patients to scan, when imaging patients is most useful, which modality to use, how to handle imaging data from many institutions, and which analytical tool to use. This edition comprises contributions from leading Japanese experts in their fields.

Summary : The dementia challenge is the largest health effort of the times we live in. The whole society has to move to a realization of the significance of prioritization to make an attempt in the direction of mental health promotion and dementia risk reduction. New priorities for research are needed to go far beyond the usual goal of constructing a disease course-modifying medication. Moreover, a full empowerment and engagement of men and women living with dementia and their caregivers, overcoming stigma and discrimination should be promoted. The common efforts and the final aim will have to be the progress of a ''dementia-constructive'' world, where people with dementia can take advantage of equal opportunities.

Summary : 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.
