• Tourette syndrome and other chronic tic disorders are common, childhood-onset neuropsychiatric conditions characterised by the presence of multiple sudden, rapid, recurrent, and non-rhythmic movements (motor tics) and/or utterances (vocal tics).
  • Apart from tics, many individuals with Tourette syndrome experience additional neurobehavioural problems such as inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity, and obsessive-compulsive symptoms.
  • Unfortunately, our understanding of the nature of Tourette syndrome is still poor.
  • The aim of EMTICS is to have a better understanding of what causes tics
