Early Symptoms of Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration
This research study seeks to evaluate the earliest signs of Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration and whether lifestyle can modify the progression of the disease. This study is seeking volunteers from families in whom at least one member has a confirmed MAPT mutation of FTLD (also known as the "tau" gene).
For more information, please contact Gayathri Cheran, at (212) 305-1561 or gc2646@cumc.columbia.edu.

Brain Donation Program: “Give the Gift of Knowledge”
Brain donation allows valuable information to be obtained regarding normal aging and diseases that affect memory. This information may be useful towards the goal of developing more effective treatment strategies. If you or a family member wish to learn more about this program.
For more information, please contact Arlene Lawton, RN at (212) 305-9086.
