A group of researchers at Rush University are studying how the brains of people with HD are activated during cognitive and movement tasks. If you are at least 30 years old and have a clinical diagnosis of Huntington's disease, you may be eligible to join. Participants will be observed while completing a series of thinking tasks and functional balance and walking assessments, and receive two MRIs--one during the initial visit and one as a two-month follow-up. 

Rush University is one of the HDSA Centers of Excellence that provides an elite team approach to Huntington’s disease care and research. Patients benefit from expert neurologists, psychiatrists, social workers, therapists, counselors, and other professionals who have extensive experience working with families affected by HD and who work collaboratively to help families plan the best HD care program throughout the course of the disease.
