Prominent Alzheimer's investigators provide a comprehensive and balanced overview of the neuropharmacological basis for therapeutics in this devastating disease. Divided into three parts, the book begins with basic research on the neurobiology of cognitive function, offering relevant information on the way the brain encodes and stores data. The second segment explores the molecular aspects of Alzheimer's Disease (AD), emphasizing investigations of possible etiological factors. In the final section, a variety of issues important in developing treatments are discussed including cholinergic-based treatments, the role of neuroinflammin in AD and the therapeutic potential of anti-inflammatory agents.
