This book provides a comprehensive account of the emotional and cognitive aspects of Parkinson's disease, derived from the neurological and psychiatric assessment of hundreds of patients by the authors. It offers a thorough survey of the published literature on the topic and readers will find a complete and helpful overview of the clinical features and treatment of Parkinson's disease, followed by discussions of associated depressive disorders, anxiety, phobias, apathy, hallucinations, delusions, and sleep disorders. The authors also discuss specific cognitive deficits and the mechanisms for these disorders, as well as the psychiatric and cognitive side effects of anti-parkinsonian medications and new surgical treatments.

Editorial Reviews

"The authors' expertise regarding the neurological and psychiatric domain of Parkinson's disease is beyond question, and their research is impressively thorough. Their work is to the point, and their language is well focused and distinct. The book abundantly meets their objectives and provides the reader with an up-to-date panorama of PD and many other neurodegenerative issues. Well organized...I highly recommend this book."
