Self Test, 2016, Video (2 min 38 sec).

The video features me in a studio environment doing a standard neurological exam that is given by doctors to assess motor and sensory responses, especially reflexes, to determine whether the nervous system is impaired. People with HD are frequently giving themselves these kinds of tests, looking nervously for ticks or hand shaking associated with early stages of Huntington’s. For them, the consequence of finding flaws in these neurological self tests are profound and life changing.
