Brief description Frontotemporal dementia accounts for 12-20% of all dementia cases and is as common as Alzheimer's disease in the < 65 year olds. Our understanding of this disease remains limited. This project aims to better characterise the range and progression of deficits in early frontotemporal dementia using tests of brain function and magnetic resonance imaging. This will assist in better diagnosis of these patients and, ultimately, may be used to monitor the outcomes of therapeutic interventions.
