Fully Revised and Updated

The only complete and up-to-date book addressing the most common behavioral symptoms of Parkinson√'s Disease (PD), including depression, anxiety, hallucinations, disrupted sleep, and compulsive behavior.

When people think about PD they usually picture tremor, shuffling, and other physical changes. But as many as 90% of all Parkinson√'s patients also live with behavioral symptoms that few families are prepared to handle. In this fully revised and updated edition of Making the Connection Between Brain and Behavior, Dr. Joseph H. Friedman, a leading expert in PD, explains the most common behavioral issues in down-to-earth, straightforward language, offers the most current research on available therapies and medications, and provides guidance on ways to communicate with your healthcare team for effective treatment.

Now, fully updated and revised throughout and including three new chapters and two new appendices, Making the Connection Between Brain and Behavior includes even more information on a variety of treatment options, including Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT). It is an essential resource for every person with PD and his or her family.
