Summary

It is important to understand the relationship between the brain, cognition and behavior when providing care to the elderly. Behavioral Neurology in the Elderly provides a comprehensive overview of this significant relationship, one of the most important topics concerning medical and behavioral gerontology today. It provides insight into how the aging brain affects memory and language, as well as motor, emotional, and executive functioning.

Beginning with a historical view of aging and healthy living, this practical and informative book describes the most important neurobehavioral issues such as information processing, motor function, language and communication. It also provides essential information on neurobehavioral disorders such as depression, sleep disorders, epilepsy, apraxia, dementia and stroke. Furthermore, it offers an ultimate guide to medical and neuropsychological geriatric assessment and evaluation. A resource for all professionals working with elderly people, Behavioral Neurology in the Elderly points out new directions in research methods for assessment, diagnosis, and treatment.
