The Amnesias

A Clinical Textbook of Memory Disorders

Andrew C. Papanicolaou

This is a concise yet comprehensive clinical text on the disorders of memory that result from psychological stress, traumatic injury, strokes, or degenerative diseases of the brain. Each amnesia syndrome is dealt with in a separate chapter that includes a clear account of the symptoms and the tests used to assess them, the predisposing factors, prevalence, prognosis, and treatment as well as the pathophysiological signs associated with them. The book is addressed mainly to neurologists, neuropsychologists, neuropsychiatrists, and cognitive neuroscientists.
