The capacity to efficiently control motor output, by either refraining from prepotent actions or disengaging from ongoing motor behaviors, is necessary for our ability to thrive in a stimulus-rich and socially complex environment. Failure to engage in successful inhibitory motor control could lead to aberrant behaviors typified by an excess of motor performance. In tic disorders and Tourette syndrome (TS) — the most common tic disorder encountered in clinics — surplus motor output is rarely the only relevant clinical sign. A range of abnormal behaviors is often encountered which are historically viewed as &ldqu...

ConclusionOur findings implicate areas previously reported to be involved in OCD, as well as areas not typically implicated in OCD, suggesting that the neurobiological profile of TS+OCD is intermediate to pure TS and pure OCD.

This article analyzes the origin of Charcot's knowledge, imparted in the Tuesday Lessons, by examining the theories of heredity and degeneration successively developed by Prosper Lucas (1808-1885) in 1847, Bénédict-Auguste Morel (1809-1873) in 1857, and Jacques-Joseph Moreau de Tours (1804-1884) in 1859. I will review examples taken from the Tuesday Lessons to illustrate how Charcot assimilated the ideas of these alienists. Two of his students, Charles Féré (1852-1907) and Georges Gilles de la Tourette (1857-1904), known for championing their master's work, went on to publish their own books tha...

Authors: Morand-Beaulieu S, Leclerc JB Abstract Tourette syndrome is a neurodevelopmental disorder which is characterized by the presence of motor and phonic tics. These tics are generally more prevalent in childhood. Tics typically reach their maximum severity before puberty, around age 10 to 12. In most patients, tic severity usually decreases during late adolescence and adulthood. However, this is not true for all individuals. To date, the developmental trajectory leading to the persistence of tics into adulthood is still poorly understood. There are very few markers that can predict the evolution of tic symptom...

This article reviews scales that have been developed for, validated in, and/or frequently used across multiple movement disorders with a focus on assessment of motor and nonmotor symptoms of Parkinson disease. Rating scales used in other disease states include those for essential tremor, dystonia (generalized dystonia, cervical dystonia, and blepharospasm), Tourette syndrome, Huntington disease, tardive dyskinesia, Wilson disease, ataxia, and functional movement disorders. Key features of each scale as well as cited criticisms and limitations of each scale are also discussed. Lastly, the article briefly discusses the emerg...

Publication date: Available online 30 January 2020Source: Journal of Psychiatric ResearchAuthor(s): Tracy Bhikram, Paul Arnold, Adrian Crawley, Elia Abi-Jaoude, Paul SandorAbstractTourette Syndrome (TS) is characterized by the presence of tics and sensory phenomena, such as premonitory urges, and is often accompanied by significant obsessive-compulsive symptoms (OCS). The goal of this exploratory study was to determine the association between functional connectivity and the different symptom domains of TS, as little is currently known about how they differ. Resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging was performed ...

IntroductionAlthough defined by the presence of tics, most patients with Gilles de la Tourette syndrome (TS) also suffer from different psychiatric disorders. While much is known about clinical characteristics of comorbidities such as attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), depression, and anxiety disorders, only very little is known about rage attacks. Most of this data is based on small studies in children. Until today no larger studies have been performed in adults with TS—most likely because of the lack of validated instruments. The aim of this study was to develop a ...
