In brief: Too many to answer
The spinocerebellar ataxias (sca) are inherited conditions with ataxia & other symptoms.
I believe that nearly 60 different scas currently identified. The different scas involve different genes and have different symptoms. Some may look parkinsonian. Sca-17 has prominent dementia without knowing which sca, this question is impossible to answer. A local movement disorder neurologist can help you.
