Correlation of neurological and neuropsychological changes in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

Takeaway

  • People with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) who do not exhibit frontotemporal dementia (FTD) can be stratified to distinct behavioural profiles, which correlate with changes in cortical thickness.

Why this matters

  • A novel stratification of behavioural profiles in ALS may have potential as an indicator of cognitive decline.
