Up to 50% of persons with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) develop cognitive impairments, particularly of executive function (EF). The Frontal Assessment Battery (FAB) provides a method for rapid assessment of EF. We investigated the FAB as an assessment of cognitive impairment among 16 subjects with ALS, and evaluated their performance on the FAB and the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE). Raw FAB and MMSE scores were Z-transformed using published age- and education-based norms. FAB Z… CONTINUE READING
