Frontotemporal Dementia provides an in-depth look at the history, various types, genetics, neuropathology and psychosocial aspects of one of the most common but least understood causes of dementia, frontotemporal lobar degeneration, from one of the world's leading centers for the study of dementia. Aided by the latest research in diagnosis, mechanism and treatment, this book captures the rich and quickly changing landscape of a devastating neurodegenerative disease, and offers up-to-date clinical advice for patient care. Frontotemporal dementia, in particular, raises psychological and philosophical questions about the nature of self, free will, emotion, art and behavior - important topics for practitioners and families to appreciate as they care for the sufferer. This book includes case studies, photographs and figures from the leaders in the field and personal communication from the researchers driving these developments.

Review:


Frontotemporal Dementia by Bruce Miller is a remarkable book. Presenting the exciting science of this rapidly progressive field, the book is comprehensive, up-to-date, and clinically relevant. While introducing the latest advances in genetics, imaging, and neuropathology, Frontotemporal Dementia captures the author's important perspective on the philosophical issues raised by these unique disorders regarding how they impact our understanding of our sense of self and our role in the human community. This milestone volume is the definitive reference on frontotemporal dementias.
-- Jeffrey Cummings, MD, Director, Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, Las Vegas, NV


"This is an exciting and authoritative book on frontotemporal dementia (FTD) that spans the biological and clinical features of a fascinating disease that sits directly in the intersection between neurology, psychiatry and neuroscience. It elucidates key principles around the biological basis for abnormal behavior. The superbly written book is a comprehensive guide for the physicians, psychologists, neuroscientists, and others who work with FTD and is very highly recommended."
-- Dilip V. Jeste, M.D., President, American Psychiatric Association


Frontotemporal lobar degenerations are being recognized with increasing frequency by the practicing neurologist. They are also offering unique research opportunities for exploring the molecular foundations of selective vulnerability and the neurobiology of cognitive networks. In this lavishly illustrated monograph, Bruce Miller integrates the history, clinical manifestations, cognitive patterns, neuropathology, genetics and even philosophical implications of FTD into a comprehensive account that is as readable as it is authoritative. This volume offers the single most coherent account of the topic that I have yet encountered.
-- M-Marsel Mesulam, MD, Ruth and Evelyn Dunbar Professor of Neurology, Psychiatry and Psychology, Director, The Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer's Disease Center (CNADC), Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Chicago, IL


"This book will be helpful to neurologists, neuropsychologists, neuropsychiatrists, those who specialize in geriatrics, and specially those who have patients with frontotemporal dementia. ... This book authored by Dr. Bruce Miller is a very important source of information on FTD, and includes case studies and Reference lists at the end of chapters on other books and sources of information and research on similar subjects. Its value is enhanced with black-and-white and multicolor brain scans, boxes, charts, tables, and other features." --Biz India
