Attention and memory functions in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal dementia

Background and aims

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal dementia are two diseases caused by progressive loss of nerve cells in the brain (neurodegenerative diseases). Since these two diseases have not yet been fully understood, we are particularly interested in higher mental performance in these two diseases, especially attention functions.

Course of the study

Patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis as well as patients with frontotemporal dementia and healthy comparators are examined using magnetic resonance tomography (MRI) and neuropsychological testing.
