By Howard J. Aizenstein MD PhD, Charles F. Reynolds III MD, Myra Fernandes MA PhD

This quantity examines the cutting-edge in our knowing of the getting older mind throughout the program of mind imaging suggestions of neuroscience to the geriatric inhabitants. by way of exploring the neurobiological features of geriatric psychological overall healthiness, scientists can start to comprehend why irregular getting older occurs and what may be performed to regard it.

Researchers within the fields of geriatric psychiatry, cognitive neuropsychology, neurology, neuroradiology, and physics have mixed their services to provide this available, compact overview of the sphere. The bankruptcy authors speak about using photograph modalities and what they could let us know concerning the getting older mind; and current state-of-the-art info on photo processing and information research within the context of geriatric populations. With this ebook, either amateur and professional investigators can achieve clean, new perception into geriatric psychological healthiness.

  • The use of MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), MRS (magnetic resonance spectroscopy), and different modalities with geriatric populations
  • Single photon emission computed tomography) and puppy (positron emission tomography) to geriatric psychological health
  • Structural mind alterations linked to common aging
  • Functional neuroanatomy of getting older and cognition
  • Brain structural and useful correlates of Alzheimer's dementia and delicate cognitive impairment
  • Neuroimaging in late-life schizophrenia
