Cerebrovascular Disease and Dementia
Second Edition
edited by
John O'Brien et al.

Cerebrovascular Disease and Dementia reviews what is now known about the relationship between cerebrovascular disease and dementia.

It describes new knowledge of how vascular processes interact with neuro-degenerative ones, and how both appear to be risk factors for the other.

Cerebrovascular Disease and Dementia contains contributions from leading international experts and covers epidemiology, diagnosis, clinical features, investigations (including neuroimaging), management, and service and caregiver issues.

Cerebrovascular Disease and Dementia will appeal to psychiatrists, neurologists, geriatricians, allied health professionals, and others involved in the care of patients with cognitive impairment and dementia.
