Normes sociales dans les pathologies dégénératives (corticales, sous-corticales et mixtes) : jugements moraux et conventionnels

Abstract : Social cognition is a skill that plays a major role in relationships among humans and which may be altered in people with dementia. In this research, we used a test designed to assess sociocognitive abilities, especially social norms with moral and conventional judgments tasks (MCJ), in brain injured patients. We compared 17 patients, with frontotemporal dementia (FTD), dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) and Parkinson's disease (PD), with 52 control subjects in order to analyze their verbal productions so as to improve the assessment grid from Ehrlé et al. (2011). The aim was to look for social cognition disorders and consequently improve diagnosis. Subjects were asked to judge the permissiveness of certain acts by rating their degree of severity on a 1 to 5 scale and to justify their choices. Then, they repeated the same task but that time knowing that these acts were fully allowed and authorized. Results of DLB and PD patients need further attention to be interpreted, but results concerning FTD patients reveal sociocognitive disorders. In the MCJ task, results are lower than in the standard task when acts are not allowed and their productions are moreover atypical. We consequently created 2 new categories in the assessment grid.
