Abstract

Evaluation of: Raaphorst J, Beeldman E, Schmand B et al. The ALS-FTD-Q: a new screening tool for behavioral disturbances in ALS. Neurology 79(13), 1377-1383 (2012). The issue of cognitive and behavioral disorders in motor neuron disease is the focus of intensive investigation. The screening tool developed by Raaphorst et al. represents a clinically significant advancement, because of its excellent psychometric properties. Further studies are needed to assess the relationship between behavioral disturbances, executive dysfunction and social cognition impairment in motor neuron disease.
