Huntington’s disease or Huntington’s chorea, from the Greek word for “dance” is the most common genetic cause of chaotic involuntary movements.  Neuropathologically, Huntington’s disease is characterized by atrophy of the heads of the caudate nuclei and enlargement of the frontal horns of the lateral ventricles. This CEREBRART work is presented without providing any further detailed explanation of the damaged cellular, tissue and organ structures shown here, and thus becomes a means for the spectator’s imaginations and neurobiology knowledge applications.
