Inability to Recognize Sarcasm Could Signal Frontotemporal Dementia

Frontotemporal dementia is an umbrella term for a group of disorders that primarily affect the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain. These areas are generally associated with personality, behavior and language. A research team from the University of California, San Francisco, led by neuropsychologist Katherine Rankin, has shown that one sign people are developing frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is that they may have problems recognizing sarcasm in another’s speech. They also may find it more difficult to detect whether or not a person is lying.
