The neurochemistry of Huntington's disease
Pearson, Sally Jane (1992) The neurochemistry of Huntington's disease. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
This thesis describes the study of the neurochemistry of Huntington's disease using a large series of post mortem brain tissue taken from patients with Huntington's disease and from matching controls with no previous history of neuropsychiatric disorder. There were two main aims: firstly, to identify and characterise any altered parameters of neurotransmitter systems, especially in relation to the symptomatology of the disease; secondly, to understand the role of neurotoxins in the aetiology of the disease, particularly endogenous compounds that may have derived from aberrant metabolism.
