Huntington’s Pattern of Neuronal Loss Corresponds with Symptom Type, Researchers Find

Sep 02, 2016 07:00 am | Magdalena Kegel

 

Neuronal loss in Huntington's diseaseResearchers at the University of Auckland in New Zealand showed that the pattern of neuronal loss in three cortical brain areas in Huntington’s disease corresponds to the predominant symptom type in a patient. The study, “Symptom heterogeneity in Huntington’s disease correlates with neuronal degeneration in the cerebral cortex,” published in the journal Neurobiology of Disease, […]

Huntington'sA new study by researchers at the Salk Institute, in California, sheds light on how a major movement center of the brain called the striatum might work. The striatum is involved in several nervous system diseases including Huntington’s disease where neurons in the region progressively degenerate, leading to severe motor and cognitive problems and eventual paralysis. The study report […]
