The Neuroscience of Dementia: Genetics, Neurology, Behavior, and Diet in Dementia brings together different fields of dementia into a single coherent book. It covers a wide range of subjects including the different types of dementia (Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body dementia, mixed dementia, vascular dementia), physical activity, risk factors, mortality, biomarkers, SPECT, CT, MRI, questionnaires, nutrition, sleep, delirium, hearing loss, agitation, aggression, delusions, anxiety, depression, hallucinations, psychosis, senile plaques, tau and amyloid-beta, neuroinflammation, molecular biology, and many other focused areas. This foundational, comprehensive book brings together the current status of understanding on all dementias and their common features in a single source. It is an invaluable resource for neuroscientists, neurologists, and anyone in the field.

Key Features

  • The most comprehensive coverage of the broad range of topics related to Dementia
  • Serves as a foundational collection for neuroscientists and neurologists on the biology of dementia and brain dysfunction
  • Contains in each chapter an abstract, key facts, mini dictionary of terms, and summary points to aid in understanding
  • Uniquely sections on specific subareas, intellectual components and knowledge-based niches that will help readers navigate key areas for research and further clinical recommendations
  • Preclinical and clinical studies will help researchers map out key areas for research and further clinical recommendations
  • A "one-stop" source for everything you need to know about Dementia


Neuroscientists/neurologists, psychologists, health scientists, public health workers, research scientists, pharmacologists, and physicians. It is suitable for graduate/postgraduate students, lecturers, and professors
