BetweenEK-60Fcontrols and ALSci, and specifically in the case of EK-60F, recognition of worry, recognition of sadness, SET-GS, and SET-EA, the difference involving ALS-CN individuals and controls was statistically considerable. These results recommend that a subtle cognitive impairment may well be present in ALS-CN sufferers, not detectable with no a neuropsychological assessment targeted to SC evaluation. Moreover, ALS patients with cognitive and/or behavioral impairment showed a significant impairment when compared with ALS-CN sufferers on RMET36 and SET-GS, but not in EK-60F. These results suggests that EK60F and SET detect minimal cognitive impairment in patients with an otherwise regular cognitive and/or behavioral profile, in contrast to the RMET-36. Alternatively, RMET-36 and SET (each assessing ToM) considerably differentiate ALS-CN from individuals with cognitive and/or behavioral impairment. Moreover, in the various regression evaluation, EK-60F showed no considerable general correlation with the other cognitive tests, whereas RMET-36 and SET-GS showed, respectively, a moderate along with a weak substantial overall correlationRMET-SET-GSSET-EAALS-CNRMET-36 SET-GS SET-IA/CI/EASET-IA/CI/EAALSbi/ci/cbiF I G U R E 3 Social cognition tests that substantially differentiate in between controls, ALS-CN, and ALSbi/ci/cbi are shown.Eotaxin/CCL11, Mouse ALS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; bi, behavioral impairment; cbi, cognitive and behavioral impairment; CI, Causal Inference; ci, cognitive impairment; CN, cognitively normal; EA, Emotion Attribution; EK-60F, Ekman 60 Faces Test; GS, Global Score; IA, Intention Attribution; RMET-36, Reading the Mind within the Eyes Test6 Faces; SET: Story-Based Empathy TaskTA B L E four Correlation among social cognition tests and neuropsychological testsTest Neuropsychological test FAS CAT TMT B-A FAB Verbal memory Visuospatial memory Visuoconstructive skills Attention/working memory RAVL-DR ROCF-DR ROCF-IR DSBW EK- 60F R2 adj = 0.185, p = 0.057 p 0.821 0.305 0.215 0.415 0.331 0.459 0.730 0.201 0.092 0.041 0.195 0.734 0.082 0.879 0.888 0.aRMET-36 R2 adj = 0.348, p 0.SET- GS R2 adj = 0.277, p = 0.Cognitive domain Executive functions0.821 0.305 0.215 0.415 0.331 0.459 0.730 0.Note: R 2 adj and p-values were obtained with multiple linear regression analysis.
