Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is a type of dementia that affects the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain. These areas are responsible for personality, behavior, language, and emotional regulation, so FTD can cause significant changes in these areas.

FTD is typically diagnosed in people under the age of 65, and it often progresses more quickly than other types of dementia. There are several different types of FTD, including behavioral variant FTD, which affects personality and behavior, and primary progressive aphasia, which affects language skills.

Symptoms of FTD can include changes in social behavior, such as apathy or disinhibition, language difficulties, and problems with movement or coordination. While there is no cure for FTD, treatments such as medications and therapies can help manage symptoms and improve quality of life.
