Professor Murat Emre was born in 1956 in Eregli, Turkey. After studying medicine at the Istanbul Faculty of Medicine he trained in Neuroscience and Clinical Neurology at the University of Zurich. He then worked in the fields of neurorehabilitation and clinical research in Switzerland for several years. He trained in movement disorders with Prof. David Marsden at the Queen Square National Hospital for Nervous Diseases, London and in behavioral neurology with Prof. Marsel Mesulam at the Beth Israel Hospital and Harvard Medical School. In 1996 he was appointed as Professor of Neurology at the Istanbul Faculty of Medicine where he started the Behavioral Neurology and Movement Disorders Unit, which he has chaired for many years. His research interests are in Parkinson's disease and related disorders, in particular cognitive aspects of the disease, Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.
This is a needed, well-written, and well-organized second edition of an essential resource on PD-D. It's required reading for any clinician who treats patients with Parkinson's or Lewy body disease. Written and edited by internationally recognized experts in the field, this is a welcome addition to the neuropsychiatric literature. * Doody's Notes *
