In clinical practice, patients with Huntington's disease (HD) often decide to solely drive in their own familiar neighborhoods and not on a motorway or in an unknown area. The aim of the study was to identify differences in driving performance between HD gene carriers and healthy individuals in simulated urban and motorway environments.
