Takeaway

  • Emotional issues, fatigue and difficulty thinking are the most frequently experienced symptoms of people with Huntington’s disease (HD).

Why this matters

    HD is characterized by involuntary movement, cognitive dysfunction, and psychiatric/behavioral disturbance; however, it is unclear which symptoms have the greatest impact. These findings may be relevant for the development of experimental therapeutics for HD.
