Abstract

Neuropsychiatric symptoms are a prominent feature of all neurodegenerative dementias. They represent invaluable clinical information for differential diagnosis of patients with cognitive decline. Neuropsychiatric symptoms increase in frequency and severity throughout the course of the disease. They often pose significant psychological burden for the patient and the family and a therapeutic challenge.
