    Searching for Answers: Families and Brain Disorders

    This four-part DVD shows the human face of degenerative brain diseases. Patients and families describe the powerful physical, emotional, and financial impact of these devastating disorders. Researchers tell how they are working to find treatments and cures for Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, (ALS) and Alzheimer's disease.

    I was sort of hoping it included other brain disorders, such as depression, anxiety, panic, etc. Sure would not classify ALS, Alzhemeimers, Parkinsons, etc. as disorders. They are diseases.

    Ordered it anyway; always learn something new.

    Thank you a million times over for sharing this site. My regret is that there isn't more info for the general public out there on these horrific diseases. Huntington's is just rare enough not to be known about by most people. This video evades the noxious psychological changes in a person with it. One of the social workers at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore once commented, "Huntington's disease would be a science fiction writer's dream disease because it is made up of so many diseases, about 17!" I can't vouch for the number, but any one of the four videos at this site show horrendous affects by diseases.
