CONCLUSIONS: While relaxation training is effective when included in conjunction with CBIT, relaxation training alone is not effective in reducing tic severity in patients with Tourette's Disorder.PMID:34543803 | DOI:10.1016/j.jbtep.2021.101692

A new beginning that looks an awful lot like the old one.When I set out to explore fractal art, I face a confusing array of controls&parameters. It has taken me years to develop the eye to select the best cropping, the most flattering palette, and the most interesting settings, then present them in a pleasing manner. Without this discipline, the fractal is an utter mess with no focus. By making a few poorly chosen decisions, the same mathematical location and the same color palette can appear completely different —and far less appealing.Of course, anybody with the time and desire to learn the software can produce...

Conclusion: Patients with TS display deficits of white matter microstructure in the CC and right ILF known to be important for interhemispheric connections as well as long association fiber bundles within one hemisphere. Because the results reported in the primary literature were highly variable, future investigations with large samples would be required to support the identified white matter changes in TS.

Genes, Vol. 12, Pages 1321: Candidate Genes and Pathways Associated with Gilles de la Tourette Syndrome—Where Are We? Genes doi: 10.3390/genes12091321 Authors: Amanda M. Levy Peristera Paschou Zeynep Tümer Gilles de la Tourette syndrome (GTS) is a childhood-onset neurodevelopmental and -psychiatric tic-disorder of complex etiology which is often comorbid with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and/or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Twin and family studies of GTS individuals have shown a high level of heritability suggesting, that genetic risk factors play an important role in diseas...
