ALS does not typically impact the basic five senses- sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch. Most people with ALS do not experience significant changes in their intelligence or other cognitive abilities, although some people do develop dementia. So you often have a situation where someone is very aware of what's going on, but can't respond or react in the ways we're all used to.
