What is the definition of Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 8?
Spinocerebellar ataxia type 8 (SCA8) is an inherited neurodegenerative condition characterized by slowly progressive ataxia (problems with movement, balance, and coordination).

This condition is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner, although not all individuals with abnormalities in the disease-causing gene will develop the disease (called reduced penetrance).
