Named after Pioneers: It's also known as steele-richardson-olszewski syndrome, after the three physicians who pioneered it's characterization. Look at this link, which will tell you far more detail about psp than i can possibly write here (space limited): ******************************http://en.M.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/progressive_supranuclear_palsy.
