Pediatric Tourette Syndrome Brain Scans Offer Clues To Disorder

Areas in the brains of children with Tourette’s syndrome have been identified that appear markedly different from the same areas in the brains of children who don’t have the neuropsychiatric disorder. Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis used MRIs for the finding. Tourette’s syndrome is defined by tics — involuntary, repetitive […]

Brain Chemical Aids Tic Control In Tourette Syndrome

A chemical in the brain could potentially be harnessed to help young people with Tourette Syndrome (TS) to overcome the physical and vocal tics associated with the neurological disorder, say researchers. Academics from The University of Nottingham reviewed recent evidence that the neurochemical known as Gamma Aminobutyric acid (GABA) is responsible for dampening down the […]

Brain Chemical Possible New Hope For Control Of Tourette Syndrome Tics

A chemical in the brain has a key role in controlling the involuntary movements and vocal tics seen in Tourette Syndrome (TS), a new study has shown. The research, from psychologists at The University of Nottingham, could offer a potential new target for the development of more effective treatments to suppress these unwanted symptoms. The […]
