Understanding frontotemporal dementia

IMPACT-AD study investigator Dr. Robin Hsiung talks about frontotemporal dementia on the Global TV News Health Matters series.

Frontotemporal dementia is the leading cause of dementia in persons under 60 years of age. Unlike Alzheimer's disease, which is commonly associated with memory loss, frontotemporal dementia is more likely to affect a persons personality, behavior, language, or movement. In the early stages of both Alzheimer's and frontotemporal dementia the symptoms can overlap -- testing done as part of the IMPACT-AD study can help doctors differentiate between the two forms of dementia.
