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).
