Control of emotional expression in pseudobulbar palsy. A personal experience.

Abstract

This report is based on the recorded experience of a patient with lability of emotional expression and other features of the syndrome of pseudobulbar palsy. We describe severe emotional overflow despite an underlying affective tone that is normal. In this context, emotional lability is a misnomer. "Hyperactive emotional reflexes" would be a more appropriate descriptive term, as the underlying mood appears normal, and only the degree of emotional expression is pathological.
