Details

Behavioral and psychological symptoms such as apathy negatively affect cognitive performance, mood, functional status, and prognosis of patients with dementia. Apathy appears to be common in many diseases of the brain, and is associated with distress in caregivers. Apathetic behavior of minor degree seems less problematic than other agitated behaviors such as irritability and restlessness. This book discusses the relationship between apathy and vascular factors in healthy elderly subjects. (Imprint: Nova)
