A 40-year-old man complains of jerky uncontrollable movements of his head, and trunk and general restlessness for 3 weeks. He mentions that his father had the same condition when he was almost the same age but he developed more severe symptoms later in life. He does not remember the name of this condition.
This disorder is associated with damage to:
A-Amygdala
B-Basal ganglia
C-Cerebellum
D-Reticular system

I presume the case in question is Huntington's disease. However, the progression of the patient's condition seems to be too quick. And in HD there is also damage to the thalamus.
