Diagnostic criteria for CBS; tractography in ALS fifty years ago; better tests for bvFTD

In April’s podcast, we put a spotlight on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal dementia.Maxime Bertoux, a neuropsychologist at Paris-Sorbonne University, discusses the problem of misdiagnosis of the behavioural variant of FTD, and how he’s shown the Social Cognition and Emotional Assessment is a more powerful tool than others in use (20.50).And Martin Turner, consultant neurologist at Oxford University Nuffield Department of Clinical Neuroscience, talks about early tractography work in ALS (13.23).We also take a look at corticobasal syndrome. JNNP editor Matthew Kiernan asks John Hodges, Neuroscience Research Australia, about his work looking to standardise diagnostic criteria (1.16).See also:Nerve fibre degeneration in the brain in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis http://tinyurl.com/ar8bolmDiagnostic criteria for corticobasal syndrome: a comparative study http://tinyurl.com/a7sskuxSocial Cognition and Emotional Assessment differentiates frontotemporal dementia from depression
