Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) patients often present with severe behavioural disturbances and concomitant lack of insight.
The underlying neural correlates of these disturbances are mostly attributed to prefrontal cortex dysfunction, but are still poorly understood.
Objectives: The current study explores whether a simple visual magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) rating scale in combination with the Frontal System Behaviour Scale (FrSBe) can be used to identify the prefrontal correlates of behavioural symptoms in behavioural variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD) and Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Methods: Forty-eight patients with a clinical diagnosis of bvFTD and AD participated in the study.
Their behavioural profiles were assessed using the Frontal System Behaviour Scale (FrSBe) and cross-correlated to...
