my wife has symptoms of cerebellar ataxia  her mother who is still living has also .I know the disease is hereditary  but I would like to know what test can be done to check my three children for the disease. i also wanted to note my wife has a brother who shows no signs of the disease as yet .
   Does anybody know what type of research is being done in this field if any ,because it seem to me that a lot of people has this condition but no famous has it yet so nothing is being done . I look frward to hearing from you soon  thanks in advance for the help
