Program strategies should include 1) Information, Consultation and Referral, 2) Health Communication Programs and Materials Development, and3) Education and Training. The NPHPRC’s mission is to provide information, education and consultation about assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and health and well-being for children with ADHD or TS. Other target audiences in the NPHPRC’s health promotion mission are health care professionals, education professionals, caregivers, and the public. Health promotion for children with ADHD or TS requires condition-specific information i...

There is little evidence that the use of cannabinoids can improve symptoms of anxiety, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), psychosis, or Tourette syndrome, according to areport inLancet Psychiatry.“Cannabinoids are often advocated as a treatment for various mental disorders,” wrote Nicola Black, Ph.D., of the University of New South Wales and colleagues. Doctors and patients “need to be aware of the low quality and quantity of evidence for the effectiveness of medicinal cannabinoids in treating mental disorders and the potential risk of advers...

Non-obscene socially inappropriate behavior (NOSI) is recognized as part of the tic disorder spectrum but has received little attention from researchers to date. A study in 87 patients with Tourette syndrome showed that comorbid attention-deficit/hyperacti...

ConclusionWe comprehensively evaluated the effect of 22 novel CYP2D6 variants on the metabolism of clonidine for the first time and hoped corresponding data provide a reference for metabolism of clonidine for further studies in vivo, and extend our understanding of the clinical drug toxicity or ineffectiveness by CYP2D6 genetic polymorphism.

This study used data from the Millennium Cohort Study to investigate the relationship between NOSI and emotional symptoms, conduct problems, and hyperactivity/inattention as assessed by the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) in 1,280 youths, aged 14 years. Furthermore, the relationship between NOSI and decision-making processes as assessed by the Cambridge Gambling Task (CGT) was investigated. Hyperactivity/inattention and conduct problems were significantly associated with NOSI; emotional problems were not. Risk taking was significantly associated with misbehaving in lessons but not with being rude or noisy in...

This report will summarize some examples of adaptation which occur during adolescence and some evidence that the adolescent brain responds differently to stimuli compared to adults and children.This symposium, “Experience during adolescence shapes brain development: from synapses and networks to normal and pathological behavior” occurred during the Developmental Neurotoxicology Society/Teratology Society Annual Meeting in Clearwater Florida, June 2018. The sections will describe the maturation of the brain during adolescence as studied using imaging technologies, illustrate how plasticity shapes the structure o...

We examined 165 consecutive GTS patients aged 5–50 years old (75.8% males). The patients were evaluated for GTS and co-morbid mental disorders according to the DSM-IV-TR. SHB was diagnosed during the interview. To determine a direct relationship between SHB and clinical variables, we conducted two analyses, at the time of evaluation and lifetime. We also compared the group of children and adults with SHB and tried to distinguish between deliberate (non-tic related SHB) and accidental (tic related SHB). Lifetime SHB was reported by 65 patients (39.4%). In 30 of the patients (46.2%), SHB was evaluated as mild, in 26 (4...

This study suggests that there is no difference in aggressive behavior between children with tics without comorbidities and healthy children. It is possible that aggressive behavior in children with tic disorders is predominantly associated with comorbid attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW The purpose of this article is to present current information on the phenomenology, epidemiology, comorbidities, and pathophysiology of tic disorders and discuss therapy options. It is hoped that a greater understanding of each of these components will provide clinicians with the necessary information to deliver thoughtful and optimal care to affected individuals. RECENT FINDINGS Recent advances include the finding that Tourette syndrome is likely due to a combination of several different genes, both low-effect and larger-effect variants, plus environmental factors. Pathophysiologically, increasing e...
