This article in a recent blog post on Huffington Post gives a good overview of Lewy Body Dementia, described as the third most common dementia.
My friend Dr. Alex Pantelyat from Johns Hopkins is quoted as follows about the disorder:
“It affects your core, it affects who you are as a person. In the case of DLB and some of these other related disorders it tends to a great extent [to] affect the frontal lobe, which is really what makes us human. It’s really unbelievably devastating.”
