This volume summarizes the advances in our understanding of these two disorders, as well as the potential relationship between the two. Key topics include advances in our ability to clinically describe the frontotemporal syndromes, preclinical detection, neuroimaging, and genetics. The exploding field of new markers in neuropathology is examined, as is the role of new genetic mutations in DNA/RNA transport systems. This book is the essential reference text for this topic, and will be of interest to neurologists and neurological trainees with a clinical or research interest in the FTDs or ALS, neuropsychologists, neuropathologists, and researchers.

*Chapter authors are internationally respected authorities in the field
*Full-color illustrations and photomicrographs are used throughout the book to illustrate key points
