Examples of possible frontotemporal dementia symptoms include: Trouble planning and prioritizing events, multi-tasking, or thinking through the consequences of one’s actions
The findings indicate that relearning of lost vocabulary is possible in semantic dementia, indicating a role of the medial temporal lobes in the acquisition of semantic information
In addition, the findings also indicate that there are not many possibilities of pharmacological treatment for semantic dementia and therefore more attention should be paid
