In Miao-Kun Sun (ED.), Research Progress in Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia, 2016, Volume 6, pp. 129 – 168. ISBN: 1634851722, 9781634851725.


In this chapter we review the clinical, neurocognitive and pathological profile in the subtypes of frontotemporal dementia (behavioral variant, primary progressive aphasia: semantic, non-progressive progressive aphasia and progressive logopenic). We then analyze the symptomatic treatments, considering the pharmacological, behavioral, and cognitive characteristics of these interventions.
