Item description for Making the Connection Between Brain and Behavior: Coping with Parkinson's Disease by Joseph H. Friedman...

While patients and families are aware of the physical challenges that accompany Parkinson's disease, few are prepared for the common behavioral issues that impact their quality of life, including depression, anxiety, dementia, paranoid delusions, and sleep disorders. This book, the only one of its kind, focuses entirely on an area that most doctors overlook. Written in layman's terms, it helps readers understand and cope with a wide variety of Parkinson's-related behavioral issues and offers guidance on communicating with the healthcare team.

Reviews - What do customers think about Making the Connection Between Brain and Behavior: Coping with Parkinson's Disease?

Must Have for Patients and Caregivers  May 24, 2008
As I read this book, I felt that it was written from inside my experience as a person with Parkinson's disease. It provides insights for the patient in a style that a non-medical person can understand. It would be especially valuable for someone who knows a Parkinson's patient. I was able to hand this book to my wife and say "this is me." Thanks, Dr. Friedman, for a significant contribution to the Parkinson's literature.

Making the Connection Between Brain and Behavior  Apr 3, 2008
Parkinson described the Shaking Palsy in 1817 as a motor disorder without significant effect on the mind. Charcot agreed in his analysis half a century later. Only recently has it been appreciated that depression, dementia, and other mental problems can be the most disabling features of this disease. As a neurologist who developed Parkinsonism myself I have in vain been searching for a comprehensive review of these problems, and now I have found it in Dr. Joseph Friedman's Making the Connection Between Brain and Behavior--Coping with Parkinson's Disease. It is filled with common sense practical suggestions related to subjects such as driving, caregiver stress, appropriate and inappropriate use of the emergency room, and every conceivable neuropsychological symptom.Patients and their families as well as physicians and nurses will find this text invaluable. I recommend it most strongly and thank Dr. Friedman for giving hope and optimism to those of us who must do battle with the Shaking Palsy every day of our lives.
