  • To investigate the therapeutic potential of environmental enrichment treatment modalities in impacting HD progression via clinical, functional, imaging, physiological and biochemical biomarkers;
  • Assess the therapeutic effectiveness of environmental enrichment in improving the quality of life for HD individuals; and
  • Design simple, inexpensive, HD-sensitive biomarkers capable of assessing HD symptomatic progression.
