João Massano, MD, focuses on the typical symptomatology in the early stages of AD and the interplay between the cognitive, functional, and behavioral changes observed across the disease continuum. Dr. Massano also discusses the importance of differentiating between psychiatric disorders and AD, given that patients in the early stages of AD may have prominent neuropsychiatric symptoms. Using the case study, he illustrates the clinical assessments typically used to support a differential diagnosis.
