FTD's Effect on Behavior and Language (1:42)

Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD) | UCSF Memory and Aging Center

  • Before you worry that it’s FTD

    Your doctor’s first mission is to rule out other possible illnesses that may look like FTD, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease or psychiatric problems. In most cases, meeting with an FTD expert is the best way to determine a correct diagnosis.

  • Help us find a cure for frontotemporal dementia

    UCSF's Memory and Aging Center (MAC) actively conducts research and clinical trials to improve the diagnosis and treatment of FTD – and even search for a cure. Your participation helps us reach these goals. Talk to your doctor or contact us to see if joining a research project is right for you.
