About Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD)

FTD is a group of clinical syndromes that involve progressive loss of behavioral, language, and/or motor functions. FTD is linked to underlying frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) pathology. Increasingly, research on FTD relies on high-quality, carefully annotated postmortem FTLD brain tissue for primary discovery research or to validate findings derived from model systems.
