Summary This prestigious volume presents the findings of an international group of academic and biotechnological researchers. Topics range from early detection programs focusing on genetic factors, novel probes for detecting B-amyloid in the living brain, and the use of telephonic screening and MRI's to the diversity of therapeutic areas such as antioxidants, estrogen agonists and various anti-B-amyloid and anti-tangle approaches. The volume is still an indispensable resource for the psychogeriatrician, psychiatrist, clinical investigator, and neurobiologist, and a must for medical libraries
