Behavioral disturbances and lack of empathy are distinctive clinical features of behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD) in comparison to Alzheimer disease (AD). The aim of this meta-analytic review was to compare facial emotion recognition performances of bvFTD with healthy controls and AD. The current meta-analysis included a total of 19 studies and involved comparisons of 288 individuals with bvFTD and 329 healthy controls and 162 bvFTD and 147 patients with AD. Facial emotion… Expand
Emotion recognition of morphed facial expressions in presymptomatic and symptomatic frontotemporal dementia, and Alzheimer’s dementia
TLDR
The results demonstrate emotion recognition deficits in both bvFTD and AD, and suggest the presence of subtle emotion recognition changes in presymptomatic C9orf72 -FTD. Expand
Behavioral and Neuroimaging Evidence for Facial Emotion Recognition in Elderly Korean Adults with Mild Cognitive Impairment, Alzheimer’s Disease, and Frontotemporal Dementia
TLDR
Focusing on the negative emotion recognition is a more effective way to discriminate healthy aging, MCI, and AD from FTD in older Korean adults. Expand
Facial expressiveness and physiological arousal in frontotemporal dementia: Phenotypic clinical profiles and neural correlates
TLDR
While bvFTD patients show an overall dampening of responses, SD patients appear to show incongruous facial emotional expressions, demonstrating that psychophysiological responses are an important mechanism underpinning normal socioemotional functioning. Expand
Meta-analysis of social cognition in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

TLDR
The severity of social cognitive impairment was similar to level of executive dysfunction and there was a significant relationship between social cognition and executive dysfunction. Expand
Meta-Analysis of Social Cognition in Mild Cognitive Impairment

  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Journal of geriatric psychiatry and neurology
  • 2017
TLDR
There is a need for longitudinal studies investigating the potential role of social cognitive impairment in predicting conversion to dementia, and available evidence for deficits in theory of mind (ToM) and emotion recognition in MCI is summarized. Expand
Recognition of Musical Emotions in the Behavioral Variant of Frontotemporal Dementia.
TLDR
The results indicate that the recognition of musical stimuli with positive and negative emotions are compromised in patients with bvFTD, and the processing of negative musical emotions is the most difficult for these individuals. Expand
Recognition of musical emotions in the behavioral variant of frontotemporal dementia.
TLDR
The results indicate that the recognition of musical stimuli with positive and negative emotions are compromised in patients with bvFTD, and the processing of negative musical emotions is the most difficult for these individuals. Expand
Can Social Cognition Measurements Differentiate Behavioral Variant Frontotemporal Dementia from Alzheimer's Disease Regardless of Apathy?
TLDR
Social cognition tests provide accurate distinction between bvFTD against either apathetic AD or non-apathetic AD, and did not correlate with apathy severity. Expand
Metacognition of emotion recognition across neurodegenerative diseases
TLDR
A link between emotion recognition and metacognition in neurodegenerative diseases is revealed and the characterization of metacognitive impairments in bvFTD and AD would be relevant for understanding patients' daily life changes in social behavior. Expand
Relative preservation of facial expression recognition in posterior cortical atrophy
TLDR
Patients with PCA have relatively preserved FE recognition compared to FI recognition, as seen in affective blindsight. Expand

How Preserved is Emotion Recognition in Alzheimer Disease Compared With Behavioral Variant Frontotemporal Dementia?
TLDR
Facial emotion recognition in AD is influenced by disease progression, with very mild-AD being virtually intact for emotion performance, while Mild/moderate-AD and bvFTD show consistent impairment in emotion recognition, with bv FTD being worse. Expand
Are you really angry? The effect of intensity on facial emotion recognition in frontotemporal dementia
TLDR
Findings indicate that a subset of FTD patients may benefit from enhanced emotional intensity that will facilitate facial emotion recognition, which is in part mediated by attentional deficits. Expand
Theory of Mind and Recognition of Facial Emotion in Dementia: Challenge to Current Concepts
TLDR
Novel findings are reported challenging the concepts that ToM is spared in AD and that recognition of facial emotion is impaired in bvFTD. Expand
Impaired recognition of body expressions in the behavioral variant of frontotemporal dementia
TLDR
It is revealed that body emotion recognition was positively associated with gray matter volume in a region of the inferior frontal gyrus (pars orbitalis/triangularis) and in line with a supramodal emotion recognition deficit in bvFTD. Expand
Face and emotion processing in frontal variant frontotemporal dementia
TLDR
Testing six patients with frontal variant frontotemporal dementia on a series of face perception tasks (including facial identity and facial expression recognition), and a test of vocal emotion recognition shows results consistent with the idea that fvFTD affects the recognition of emotional signals from multiple modalities rather than facial expression processing alone. Expand
Is the emotion recognition deficit associated with frontotemporal dementia caused by selective inattention to diagnostic facial features?
TLDR
This work suggests that the emotional expression recognition deficit associated with FTD is unlikely to be rectified by adjusting selective attention to diagnostic features, as has proven useful in other select disorders. Expand
Perception of emotion in frontotemporal dementia and Alzheimer disease.
TLDR
Anger, sadness, and disgust were less recognized in FTD than in AD patients who did not differ from controls, whereas fear and contempt were poorly recognized in both groups of patients compared with controls, arguing for different neural substrates underlying the recognition of various basic emotions. Expand
Recognition of Emotion in the Frontal and Temporal Variants of Frontotemporal Dementia
TLDR
The results suggest that damage to frontal lobe regions in FTD may lead to more profound impairment in recognition of emotion than when damage is more limited to the temporal lobe. Expand
Impaired recognition of negative facial emotions in patients with frontotemporal dementia
TLDR
It is concluded that FTD patients are impaired in the recognition of negative facial emotions. Expand
Disturbance of Emotion Processing in Frontotemporal Dementia: A Synthesis of Cognitive and Neuroimaging Findings
TLDR
Results across subtypes of FTD are most consistent with the multimodal system model, and support the presence of somewhat dissociable neural correlates for basic emotions, with strongest evidence for the emotions anger and sadness. Expand
