    Frontotemporal dementia is a progressive disease, a heterogeneous etiology, in which neurodegenerative changes are located in the frontal lobes and temporal lobes. It occurs from 5 to 7 times less frequently than dementi in Alzheimer disease, representing approximately 10-15% of all dementia....

    Disinhibition is a common behavioural symptom in frontotemporal dementia but its neural correlates are still debated. In the current study, we investigated the grey and white matter neural correlates of disinhibition in a sample of behavioural variant frontotemporal dementia (n = 14) and...

    Behavioural variant frontotemporal dementia is characterized by a change in comportment. It is associated with considerable functional decline over the course of the illness albeit with sometimes dramatic variability among patients. It is unknown whether any baseline features, or combination of...
