​​Monthly ​Feature: Huntington's Disease Awareness Month​
​ ​​Huntington’s Disease (HD) is a severely debilitating neurodegenerative disease caused by a genetic mutation which leads to creation of mutated “huntingtin” protein (normally, the huntingtin protein functions to preserve cells of the nervous system [neurons], especially in the brain). Although the exact mechanism is not fully known, the development of this mutated protein leads to destruction of neurons in the basal ganglia, a part of the brain involved in movement regulation, as well as other areas.  Click here​ to read more information about this topic.
