Huntington’s Disease (HD) Caudate nuclei of basal ganglia die over time Patient loses ability to make voluntary responses. Inability to make voluntary response reduces imagery and verbal rehearsal strategies. Results in poorer recall than recognition.

Hence recall is ultimately disproportionately impaired...
