Abstract:
A number of behavioural symptoms are commonly displayed by Alzheimer's disease (AD) sufferers. Behavioural disturbances in AD can include affective symptoms, agitation, aggression and psychosis (Burns et al. 1990a Burns et al. 1990b Burns et al. 1990c). Alois Alzheimer was the first to document psychosis in the disease bearing his name, during his description of the clinical presentation of a patient upon admission to the Frankfurt asylum in 1906 (Alzheimer 1995 Schneider and Dagerman 2004).
