Brief AbstractIn frontotemporal dementia, memory performance on standardized tests is preserved relative to emotional processing. In the present study, we investigate recognition memory for emotional pictures in FTD patients and their age-matched controls. Thus far, recognition of emotional content was worse in FTD. The difference between groups has been smaller for the neutral pictures. Entails testing at a laptop computer.
