Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(11), 1189–1190. Reviews the book, Memory Functioning in Dementia edited by Lars Bäckman (1992). As noted in the editor's preface, “dementia diseases constitute the most common cause of severe mental deterioration in the world today, and expected changes in the population structure will inevitably result in that gradually more people become demented.” Given that memory dysfunction is both a cardinal and early manifestation of dementia, the topic of this volume is most timely. In addition, a wide range of research areas and experimenters is represented here. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
