This cross-sectional study investigates correlates of hypokinesia in HD and its effect on global functioning. Among 150 HD gene carriers, 96 patients were clinically motor manifest. Hypokinesia was assessed using the motor section of the Unified Huntington's Disease Rating Scale and global functioning was… CONTINUE READING
