Frontal Systems Behavior Scale (FrSBe)

The FrSBe fills a gap in the assessment of frontal systems behavioral syndromes by providing a means to identify and quantify disordered natural behavior so that problems may be targeted for treatment.

Three syndromes are addressed

  • The FrSBe provides a brief, reliable, and valid measure of three frontal systems behavioral syndromes: apathy, disinhibition, and executive dysfunction.
  • It quantifies behavioral changes over time by including both baseline (retrospective) and current assessments of behavior.
  • The FrSBe includes a total score, as well as scores on three subscales that correspond to the three frontal systems behavioral syndromes.

Ideal for use when time is limited

  • This 46-item behavior rating scale is much easier and less time-consuming to administer than a neuropsychological test battery.
  • Two hand-scorable, carbonless test booklets (self and family) are available. Items are written at a 6th-grade reading level. Two profile forms (self and family) allow comparisons of behaviors pre- and post-injury/illness.
  • Normative data are derived from a community-based sample of 436 men and women for two levels of education; data are also provided for several clinical groups, including patients with frontotemporal dementia, frontal lesions, nonfrontal stroke, head injury, Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease.
