Gilles de la Tourette syndrome, currently known as Tourette syndrome (TS) in the United States and much of the rest of the world, is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by the presence of multiple motor tics and at least one vocal/phonic tic. Originally described over a century ago, TS is increasingly recognized as a relatively common disorder, with a privileged position at the borderlands of neurology and psychiatry: both clinical and epidemiological studies suggest that associated behavioural problems are common in people with TS, and it seems likely that the investigation of the neurobiological bases of TS will shed light on the common brain mechanisms underlying movement and behaviour regulation.

Abstract

Gilles de la Tourette syndrome, currently known as Tourette syndrome (TS) in the United States and much of the rest of the world, is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by the presence of multiple motor tics and at least one vocal/phonic tic. Originally described over a century ago, TS is increasingly recognized as a relatively common disorder, with a privileged position at the borderlands of neurology and psychiatry: both clinical and epidemiological studies suggest that associated behavioural problems are common in people with TS, and it seems likely that the investigation of the neurobiological bases of TS will shed light on the common brain mechanisms underlying movement and behaviour regulation.
