    The lecture Anomalies of the Aging Brain: Huntington's Disease by Georgina Cornwall, PhD is from the course Aging.


    Included Quiz Questions

    1. Both Huntington's disease and Parkinson's disease are due to interrupted neuronal signalling in the indirect movement pathway.
    2. Both Huntington's disease and Parkinson's disease are neurodegenerative disorders.
    3. Both Huntington's disease and Parkinson's disease pathology starts in the basal ganglia with abnormal protein aggregating in the neurons.
    4. Both Huntington's disease and Parkinson's disease are progressive and result in dementia in the end-stages of the progression of the disease.

    2. Huntington's disease is autosomal dominant
    3. Huntington's disease is due to abnormal trinucleotide repeat expansion on the HTT gene
    4. Huntington's disease causes coding for mutant amino acid glutamine that forms sticky aggregates of protein in neurons.
    5. Huntington's disease affects basal ganglia neurons.
