Now in its second edition, this text is the most up-to-date reference on the evaluation and treatment of neurologic problems in older adults.

The book is organized so that clinicians can quickly look up either a patient's symptom(s) or a disease, and includes medication charts and diagnostic algorithms. Psychosocial issues such as driving and long-term care options are also addressed.

This edition has more information on EMG, evoked potentials, other clinical neurophysiologic procedures, brain imaging, PET scans for dementia screening, and functional imaging in patients with cognitive changes. Updated information on new antiparkinsonian agents and paraneoplastic syndromes is also included.
