The Huntington's Disease Association is delighted to welcome Senior Occupational Therapist Alex Fisher,  who specialises in working with people with Huntington's disease, to talk about social cognition in Huntington's disease and about her new research project.

Social cognition is the science underlying people's social skills such as interpreting emotions or thinking about and interacting with others. Scientists know that the Huntington's disease brain struggles with social cognition but not much about what this looks like in everyday life.  Alex is just about to start a study on everyday social skills in Huntington's disease, and this webinar is for those interested in finding out more about social cognition and also for those who might be interested in taking part in her study.
