Huntington's disease is a genetic disorder, specifically affecting the gene that codes for the protein huntingtin[1]. The symptoms of Huntington's disease include involuntary movements, depression, irritability and general behavioural changes[2].

Huntingtons disease is an inhertied disease which causes areas of the brain to stop working overtime, and in many cases can becomes fatal after 20 years[3]
