Moral judgement in two distinct neurological disorders

Takeaway

  • People with behavioural variant frontotemporal disorder (bvFTD) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) assume similar moral positions to those of healthy people, however they struggle to transfer moral principles into situational decisions.

Why this matters

  • Deficiencies in moral judgement may have implications in everyday life of people living with bvFTD, ALS and their care-givers.
