SCIENCE: Motor speech signature of behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia Refining the phenotype
Comprehensive description of motor speech function in behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD)
One in 8 patients presented with moderate speech timing deficits with a further two-thirds rated as mild or subclinical. Subtle but measurable deficits in prosody are common in bvFTD and should be considered during disease management. Language function correlated with speech timing measures derived from the unprepared monologue only.
