About the Course:
Friedreich ataxia is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by symptoms such as progressive gait and limb ataxia, weakness, reflex and deep sensory loss, and skeletal deformations. Although depression is well known to negatively impact quality of life and disease progression, few studies have examined its role in Friedreich ataxia. This study addresses this deficit by assessing the relationship between depressive symptoms and the slowing of information processing speed in addition to other clinical variables.
