A new study published online September 12, 2018 in the journal Neurology says that amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig’s disease, also affects the mind, especially later in the course of the disease. These patients have problems with thinking skills and behavioral problems such as apathy, changes in eating behaviors and lack of inhibition even at the earliest stages and by the last stage of the disease, only very few people are free of these cognitive and behavioral problems. Hence, these patients should be routinely screened for these problems.
