About The Product

This book classifies and groups dementias and movement disorders in terms of Molecular Pathology, a strategy that proved to be successful in the first edition in 2003. Since 2003 there have been so many significant advances in the field that a new edition is urgently required. Authors from the wide field of experts in the International Society of Neuropathology and related disciplines bring together the pathological features of all neurodegenerative diseases.
