Abstract

Dear Editor, Impairments in dual tasking are an early feature of Huntington's disease (HD) that severely affect activities of daily living. Studies have documented impairments in walking during talking tasks (motor-cognitive), bimanual tapping tasks (motor-motor) and paired choice reaction and digit backward dual tasks (cognitive-cognitive) [1], [2], [3], [4], [5].
