Description

A unique resource for all health care practitioners caring for people with multiple sclerosis.

Endorsed by The Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers

Multiple sclerosis (MS), a progressive neurologic disease, is characterized by a host of physical symptoms. But the neurobehavioral consequences of MS can be as devastating and debilitating as physical symptoms, and they are often unreported and undertreated. In this new book, Dr. Anthony Feinstein, a neuropsychiatrist, documents the effects of MS on cognition, information processing speed, learning and memory, executive function, personality, mood, and behavior.

Feinstein touches on a number of topics, including

• the common cognitive challenges that occur with MS, such as slowed information processing speed, impaired memory, and executive function deficits
• psychiatric disorders that accompany MS, such as depression and psychosis
• current neuropsychological, brain MRI, and treatment data applicable to the psychiatric and cognitive disorders

Mind, Mood, and Memory in Multiple Sclerosis is enhanced both by the latest science and by eloquent case histories that illustrate each cognitive and emotional disorder. Feinstein also provides recommendations for evidence-based therapeutic interventions. Written in an immediate, accessible way, this book has a crossover appeal, making it of interest not only to neurologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychiatrists, neuropsychologists, psychologists, occupational therapists, and nurses but also to people with MS and their caregivers, family, and friends.
