real-world nuance to large-scale concepts and breaking down complex processes into

A sampling of the topics covered:

? Assessment of depression and anxiety in older adults.

? The assessment of change: serial assessments in dementia evaluations.

? Elder abuse identifi cation in older adults.

? Clinical assessment of postoperative cognitive decline.

? Cognitive training and rehabilitation in aging and dementia.

? Diff erentiating mild cognitive impairment and cognitive changes of normal


? Evaluating cognition in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

This Second Edition of the Handbook on the Neuropsychology of Aging and Dementia

offers a wealth of expert knowledge and hands-on guidance for neuropsychologists,

gerontologists, social workers, and other clinicians interested in aging. Th is can be a

valuable reference for those studying for board certifi cation in neuropsychology as well

as a resource for veteran practitioners brushing up on key concepts in neuropsychology

of age related disorders.

Subsequently, she underwent advanced training in a neuropsychology post doctoral fellowship at New York University School of Medicine-Hospital for Joint Diseases, as well as a neuropsychology fellowship at the New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center. Presently, her primary clinical and research activities focus on cognitive changes associated with neurologic disorders and, in particular, age-related diseases. In addition, she is a co-investigator on a number of research initiatives relating to cognitive decline associated with neurologic disease (Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, normal pressure hydrocephalus), chronic pain and depression.

Heather Katzen, Ph.D. is currently an adjunct assistant research professor in the Department of Neurology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. She received her doctoral degree in clinical psychology/neuropsychology from the University of Miami, completed her internship in clinical neuropsychology at Long Island Jewish/Hillside Hospital and her post doctoral fellowship in neuropsychology at New York Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical College.  Her research focuses on age-related cognitive changes associated with neurological disease and most recently in cognitive recovery following treatment in Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus.
