Part of the Oxford Textbooks in Clinical Neurology series, the Oxford Textbook of Cognitive Neurology and Dementia covers the dramatic developments that have occurred in the basic neuroscience and clinical research in both cognitive neurology and dementia in an integrated fashion. The text is firmly based on the clinical approach to the patient with cognitive impairment and dementia, while also providing the essential background scientific knowledge that is fundamental to clinical practice. Divided into three main sections, this book combines the basic science (Section 1) with different types of cognitive deficit or neuropsychological presentation (Section 2), and disease specific chapters (Section 3). With contributions from a range of international experts, this is essential reading for clinicians with an interest in cognition and dementia including neurologists, geriatricians and psychiatrists. It provides a powerful means of bringing together different aspects of conceptual understanding and factual knowledge, in a way that usually can only come after many years in the field.

About the author: 

Masud Husain is Professor of Neurology & Cognitive Neuroscience at the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Oxford, UK. He read Physiological Sciences/Medicine (1981-84) at Oxford before completing his PhD in 1987. He held a Harkness Fellowship and was a postdoctoral fellow at MIT, prior to returning to Oxford to finish his clinical degree. After Neurology training in London, he held a joint appointment as Consultant Neurologist and Wellcome Trust Senior Fellow (2000-12). In 2013, he was awarded a Principal Fellowship by The Wellcome Trust and moved to Oxford where he is a Professorial Fellow at New College. Previously he was Professor of Clinical Neurology at UCL & The National Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery, London and Deputy Director of the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience.; Jonathan M. Schott is Reader in Clinical Neurology, at the Dementia Research Centre, Department of Neurodegenerative Diseases, UCL Institute of Neurology, UK. He was awarded a First Class BSc in Basic Medical Sciences with Physiology (Imperial College, 1993), gained Honours (in surgery) at medical finals, and was awarded the Malcolm Morris Memorial Prize (1996). Jonathan joined the Dementia Research Centre (DRC), Institute of Neurology (2001-5), where he was awarded his MD (UCL, 2004), for investigation of the role of serial magnetic resonance imaging as a tool for tracking the progressions of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and in aiding diagnosis. After completing his clinical training, he rejoined the DRC as HEFCE/NHS Senior Lecturer/Honorary Consultant at the Institute of Neurology, UCL (2009-).
