Robin Williams' widow writes essay about his struggle with Lewy body disease




- Robin Williams had a high concentration of Lewy bodies in the amygdala which likely caused the acute paranoia and out-of-character emotional responses

- There was an incident where he was unable to remember a single line during the filming of Night At The Museum: Secret of the Tomb

- "At times, he would find himself stuck in a frozen stance, unable to move, and frustrated when he came out of it."

- Susan Schneider Williams serves on the Board of Directors for the American Brain Foundation
