  • Motor neuron disease (MND) and the behavioural variant of frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD) are thought to be part of a disease spectrum. There is uncertainty about the frequency and characteristics of behavioural changes in MND, and similarly, about a relation between bvFTD and the site of onset of MND. Our aim was to perform a systematic review of the publications on behavioural changes in MND. An extensive search for articles on behavioural changes in MND patients was performed. First, cohort… CONTINUE READING
