Pseudobulbar Affect (PBA)

Pseudobulbar Affect (PBA) is a neurological disorder occurring secondary to neurologic disease or brain injury and it is characterized by episodes of involuntary crying or laughing incongruent with the patient’s underlying mood. PBA is also associated with significant burden to the lives of patients and their caregivers, but, to date, it is widely under-recognized.
