Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and the Frontotemporal by Michael J. Strong

By Michael J. Strong

During the last ten years, there was an expanding attractiveness that syndromes of frontotemporal disorder (FTD) are a standard incidence in sufferers with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Such syndromes will be found in as many as 60% of sufferers with ALS. Conversely, the prevalence of motor neuron disorder in sufferers with clinically natural frontotemporal dementia is more and more well-known. this implies that to a point there are overlapping syndromes within which either ALS and FTD happen in the similar person.

This quantity summarizes the advances in our realizing of those problems, in addition to the aptitude courting among the 2. Key issues comprise advances in our skill to clinically describe the frontotemporal syndromes, preclinical detection, neuroimaging, and genetics. The exploding box of recent markers in neuropathology is tested, as is the function of recent genetic mutations in DNA/RNA delivery platforms. This e-book is the basic reference textual content for this subject, and should be of curiosity to neurologists and neurological trainees with a scientific or study curiosity within the FTDs or ALS, neuropsychologists, neuropathologists, and researchers.
