Summary

Huntington's disease is an inherited disease of the brain. There is no cure, but much can be done to help families.

The disease damages some of the nerve cells in the brain, causing deterioration and gradual loss of function of areas of the brain. This affects movement, cognition (perception, awareness, thinking, judgement) and behaviour.
