(image?) Is there a genetic component to the illness? How often does it occur in the population? What part(s) of the brain are affected? How? (diagram) What are the symptoms? When in life is it usually diagnosed? How does it affect the sufferer? Their family? Their work life? What is the treatment and how effective is the treatment? Can it be cured?
