Frontotemporal degeneration

A human brain showing frontotemporal lobar degeneration causing frontotemporal dementia.

Frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) is a form of dementia. In the over 65 age group it is probably the fourth most common type of dementia after Alzheimer's disease, dementia with Lewy bodies and vascular dementia. In the below 65 age group it is the second most common cause after Alzheimer's disease.

There are three clinical variants of FTLD:

There are a number of possible pathological findings at post-mortem:

Assessment | Biopsychology | Comparative | Cognitive | Developmental | Language | Individual differences | Personality | Philosophy | Social |
Methods | Statistics | Clinical | Educational | Industrial | Professional items | World psychology |
