Frontotemporal Dementia

Frontotemporal Dementia is a term used to describe a group of neurocognitive disorders that encompass progressive dysfunction in executive functioning, behavior, and language. As a group, these disorders typically have brain atrophy in the frontal and/or temporal lobes. Frontotemporal Dementia is considered young-onset dementia, occurring between the ages of 45–65, and is the most common dementia in those under the age of 60.
