Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, neuroscience

Summary: Patients who suffer from frontotemporal dementia with extrapyramidal symptoms have brainstem atrophy and reduced metabolic activity in specific brain regions compared to those with FTD without extrapyramidal symptoms.

This observation can facilitate differential diagnostics in frontotemporal dementia.
