Motor neurone disease also includes non-motor symptoms, one of the most common being cognitive change. Over recent years research has shown that changes can occur in the frontal and temporal areas of the brain, which effect thinking, reasoning and behaviour.
Facilitated by Professor Sharon Abrahams, Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologist with the University of Edinburgh, this masterclass will enable you to:
- Understand the cognitive and behavioural difficulties associated with MND.
- Learn to administer the Edinburgh Cognitive and Behavioural ALS Screen (ECAS) to assess people with MND.
