The Neural Basis for Frontotemporal Degeneration

Brief Description Of Study

The purpose of this research study is to develop a better understanding of the genetic causes for frontotemporal degeneration (FTD), as well as Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) and Multiple System Atrophy (MSA). These conditions include difficulty with language and speaking, organization and planning, memory, and/or a behavior or personality change. It is hoped that such information will advance the knowledge of what causes these conditions and in the future lead to a diagnostic test and treatment for frontotemporal degeneration.
