The Nature of Dementia

  • Allen Jack Edwards
Part of the Perspectives on Individual Differences book series (PIDF)


The last half of the twentieth century has seen the growth of a remarkable awareness of health care, both in terms of needs and research. Many conditions that resulted in slow and painful death in past generations are now made more tolerable by drugs or surgery, whereas some are treatable to the extent that their progress is halted or slowed, and a few are now curable. These last conditions, however, are restricted almost exclusively to diseases with known causes and/or major research efforts.
