About the ProgramPseudobulbar affect (PBA) causes sudden, unpredictable episodes of crying or laughing that seem overreactive or out of place. Often confused with depression, PBA occurs when a neurologic conditions or brain injury (like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS, dementia, multiple sclerosis or stroke) disrupts signals in the brain that control emotion. PBA can be embarrassing and negatively impact a patient’s social life and relationships, but treatments are available. Please join us for a special one-hour online education program for patients and caregivers, originally recorded live with a panel of PBA experts.
