Huntington’s Disease

Hay Festival 2018, 

Join the Cardiff scientist to understand and explore the genetic disorder, a condition that prevents the brain working properly. It gets gradually worse over time and causes motor, cognitive and psychiatric symptoms. Yhnell will discuss the ethical dilemmas of genetic testing and their implications before focusing on current research into novel therapies and her research on computerised cognitive training (brain training) for people with the disease.
