The last two decades have seen a dramatic increase in the number of published neuropsychological studies. Nowhere is this more evident than in the investigation of the psychological consequences of degenerative brain diseases. Studies on the biological, neuropsychological, and social changes resulting from such disorders as Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and Huntington’s disease abound. This book is primarily a survey of the neuropsychological research focused on these chronic neurological conditions. My objective is to make this research more accessible to clinicians who work with patients who have degenerative brain diseases and to students encountering these patients in the course of their training.
