    Huntington’s Disease is a complex disease that affects a part of the brain connected with many important areas that help control cognitive thought, movement, and mood. That trio of affected areas can create challenging changes in behavior and it’s important to understand exactly what some of those changes are and how they occur. Huntington disease is an incurable, progressive, genetic disorder leading to the breakdown of nerve cells within the brain. Affecting men and women equally, it results in loss of muscle control, memory, and cognition, and is fatal for all patients diagnosed, often within 15 years of onset.
