Summary Annotation In this new edition of the acclaimed Dementia: Presentations, Differential Diagnosis, and Nosology, V. Olga B. Emery, Ph. D., and Thomas E. Oxman, M.D., bring together a distinguished group of medical authorities & mdash;including many who have done seminal research in this field & mdash;to discuss the spectrum of dementing disorders and explain their overlap, presentations, and differential diagnosis.
