Building on evidence for cognitive-behavioural change in people with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), the current study uses a range of neuropsychological measures to delineate the nature and scope of reported deficits in emotional processing and social cognition in people with ALS.
Compared to the healthy control group, the ALS group was impaired on composite scores indexing executive function and performance on the emotional processing and social cognition tasks. Single-case analyses revealed that ALS patients showed heterogeneous performance across the cognitive tasks.
