Lewy Body Dementia may be the second most common neuropathologic cause of dementia behind Alzheimer disease, but it remains largely a clinical diagnosis with limited treatment options. This week on BrainWaves, Dr. Amy Colcher (Cooper University Hospital) reviews the diagnostic criteria and management strategies for patients and their caregivers who suffer from this condition.
Plus, a sort of tribute to Robin Williams.
