Geriatric neurology

The geriatric neurology older patients typically present with overlapping problems from various disorders, the effects of natural ageing can be difficult to disentangle from clinical conditions, and indistinct syndromes are common. Neurology of the older adult thus demands a more holistic and multidisciplinary approach: distinguishing normal age-related changes from those that require treatment is a challenge. Pleasingly, this is reflected in the structure and content of this text.
