Moral emotions, a diagnotic tool for frontotemporal dementia?

(IOS Press) A study conducted by Marc Teichmann and Carole Azuar at the Brain and Spine Institute in Paris (France) and at the Piti é -Salp ê tri è re Hospital shows a particularly marked impairment of moral emotions in patients with frontotemporal dementia (FTD). The results, published in the Journal of Alzheimer'sDisease, open a new approach for early, sensitive and specific diagnosis of FTD.

CONCLUSIONS: We highlight the frequent presence of amyloid pathology in prodromal LBD in our population, and the probable involvement of different metabolic pathways in the same clinically defined dementia. PMID: 31309997 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: Our findings imply a shared underlying pathology relating MS and brain volume and suggest cognitive functional declines through the muscle-brain axis. Further longitudinal studies are needed to find possible and related causes of reduced MS and cortical atrophy in patients with dementia. PMID: 31311027 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
