About this Book

Aging affects neurological function leading to neurological disease

As society grows older, so do the neurological problems associated with aging. These can be new neurological deficits due to the aging process itself, or the effect of aging on already existing neurological conditions. Neurologists will spend increasing amounts of time managing patients with age-related neurological complications.

Geriatric Neurology brings together the wisdom of world-leading experts. They have crafted a new textbook to define this emerging subspecialty from basic science through clinical assessment and medical management to social aspects of patient care. Geriatric Neurology covers:

  • The aging brain in neurology
  • Assessment of the geriatric neurology patient
  • Neurological conditions in the elderly
  • Therapeutics for the geriatric neurology patient
  • Management issues beyond therapeutics

Comprehensive in scope but with practical focus for effective patient care, Geriatric Neurology provides top-of-class guidance for the management of elderly patients with neurological disorders.
