What is Huntington’s Disease?

Huntington’s Disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that progressively impacts the nervous system, including brain function and neuron connectivity. It manifests through a combination of cognitive, behavioral, and motor symptoms, such as:

  • Decline in executive functions like planning and organization
  • Behavioral disturbances
  • Abnormal motor movements and rigidity
  • Challenges with balance and coordination
  • Cognitive difficulties, often preceding motor issues
  • Dementia and sensory impairments

Recognizing these symptoms early is crucial, making regular screenings and tests vital for managing Huntington’s Disease.
