About the Authors
  • The term 'dementia' describes a collection of symptoms including cognitive dysfunction, memory loss, language and communication issues, and behavioral symptoms. There are numerous causes of dementia and, worldwide, over 35 million individuals have some form of dementia. This book describes the most common causes of dementia, reviews best practices for differentially diagnosing dementia, as well as management strategies to help improve quality of life for both patients and carers. Stahl's Illustrated Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias is a concise guide, with all concepts illustrated by full-color figures and tables, that will be familiar to readers of Stahl's Essential Psychopharmacology and The Prescriber's Guide. The visual learner will find that this book makes psychopharmacological concepts easier to master, and the non-visual learner will enjoy this book's short explanations of complex psychopharmacological concepts. Each chapter builds upon previous ones, synthesising information about basic biology, diagnostics, treatment plans, complications, and comorbidities.

    • Written by a high-profile name in psychopharmacology
    • Pocket-sized to ensure portability and aid use
    • Complex concepts are explained simply through concise need-to-know text and high quality color illustrations
