In neurodegenerative diseases such as Huntington's disease neuronal networks undergo dramatic changes. Understanding these changes at early stages of the disease may provide opportunities for therapeutic targets. I use behavior with concurrent electroencephalography, local field potentials, and multiple single neuron recordings to characterise such changes in a model of Huntington's disease.
