This dataset consists of neuropsychological data and ECOCAPTURE behavioral metrics (two Excel files) as well as the R code in order to reproduce the results. The behavior of 23 bvFTD patients and 24 HCs was observed, and the behavioral data were collected based on the ECOCAPTURE Disinhibition ethogram and apathy ethogram, throughout the 45-minute ECOCAPTURE protocol, and three sample sessions: 7-minute FP, 7-minute GP, 3-minute GP. Behavioral metrics were obtained by behavioral coding from 45-minute video footage for each individual. These behavioral coding data were collected through the continuous sampling method (all occurrences of behaviors were recorded) using NOLDUS The Observer XT (Version 14.0) [1], and based on the ECOCAPTURE disinhibition ethogram as well as the ECOCAPTURE apathy ethogram [2].
