Almost a century has passed since Alzheimer described the neuropathological findings associated with Alzheimer's disease, which is being increasingly diagnosed as our lives expand. This common disorder is attracting the attention of more physicians and allied health professionals who are called upon to diagnose and treat it and discover its causes.
The text will be a prime source of information on Alzheimer's disease for the remainder of this century. The editors have devoted the greater part of their professional lives to the study of this disorder, and they are widely considered to be key sources of information. Since progress in understanding Alzheimer's disease has expanded exponentially over the last decade, the editors have gathered a number of experts from various fields to produce a most inclusive summary. The book stands apart from the many other multiauthor texts that often result from scientific meetings at which esoteric details are frequently presented.
