Tourettes Syndrome

Some psychiatric disorders, like Tourette's syndrome, have significant overlap (co-morbidity) with other psychiatric disorders (OCD and ADHD in the case of Tourette's). This may make the elucidation of genetic causes more difficult. Tourette's syndrome is characterized by multiple motor tics and one or more vocal tics. It has onset before eighteen years and is one and one-half to three times more common in males. Twin, adoption, and segregation analysis studies support a genetic etiology for Tourette's syndrome. An autosomal dominant inheritance was initially suggested, but other inheritance patterns have been recently reported. There appears to be a relation with ADHD (up to 50 percent of individuals with Tourette's also have ADHD) and OCD (up to 40 percent of individuals with Tourette's have OCD). First-degree relatives are at high risk for developing tics and obsessive compulsive disorders.

Competing Response Practice

Keith was a 12-year-old male who exhibited two motor tics a mouth tic in which he pulled back the corners of his mouth, stretched his mouth open, and stuck out his tongue and an eye-blinking tic involving hard eye blinking. Keith was diagnosed with Tourette's disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and was receiving sertraline (25 mg) daily. He received competing response training as part of a research project completed by Doug Woods, Ray Miltenberger, and Vicki Lumley in 1996.

Differential Diagnosis Of Seizures

Hyperkinetic movement disorders can be difficult to differentiate from complex partial seizures. Sydenham's chorea is infrequently seen today, and drug-induced chorea (ethosuximide, carbamazepine, or diphenhydramine hydrochloride) and lupus-induced chorea are likewise very uncommon. Tourette syndrome is more frequently seen, but rarely does the child appear acutely ill. Kinesogenic chorea is a movement disorder brought on by action and mimics simple motor partial seizures.

Impact Of Catecholamines On Behavior

Another illness that may illuminate the role of dopamine in regulation of behavior is Tourette's syndrome. This is an illness with onset usually between the ages of 4 and 8 years of age however, it can occur at any time. It is characterized by rapid, repetitive movements known as motor tics that can be as simple as eye blinking or as complex as assuming contorted body positions. In addition to these movements, vocal tics occur ranging from repetitive coughing and throat clearing to shouting obscene words (coprolalia). These utterances can be a great source of embarrassment to the affected individuals. Both the vocalizations and the motor tics respond to antipsychotic drugs that are, of course, dopamine receptor blockers. This effect on Tourette's symptoms occurs even though the patients are not psychotic. Although dopamine is known to play a role in integrating motor movements, there is a distinct possibility that it may also inhibit socially undesirable movements and vocalizations....

Cannabis and the cannabinoids

Dopamine transmission, movement disorders and psychosis. CB1 receptors are densely expressed in the basal ganglia and cortex, a distribution which provides an anatomical substrate for the functional interaction between the cannabinoid system and ascending dopaminergic pathways. There is experimental evidence to show that anandamide modulates the dopamine-induced facilitation of psychomotor activity. In support of this hypothesis, ''knock-out'' mice lacking the CB1 receptor show a profound decrease in locomotor activity. The therapeutic implications of this discovery have been shown by the discovery that CB1 receptor agonists alleviate the spasticity in various conditions, and tics in Tourette's syndrome. With regard to psychosis, there is consensus that heavy cannabis abuse can precipitate psychotic episodes in those with an underlying schizophrenic condition. It is possible that CB1 antagonists may therefore be of some therapeutic value in the treatment of psychotic disorders. CB1...

Total Cerebral Volume

Autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), childhood-onset schizophrenia, dyslexia, eating disorders, fetal alcohol syndrome, obsessive-compulsive disorder, Sydenham's chorea, and Tourette's syndrome. It is evident that a normative sample must be carefully screened to rule out these conditions. Likewise, affective disorders and substance abuse have been associated with structural anomalies in adults and should be considered as potential confounds in pediatric samples as well. Beginning with Geschwind, several investigators have noted a relationship between handedness and structural symmetry measures of the brain. Handedness should not be viewed as strictly left or right but as a continuum, and it should be quantified as such. Patient and control groups must be matched for handedness since symmetry differences are often key features in discriminating groups such as ADHD, dyslexia, or Tourette's disorder.

Pharmacogenetics and psychopharmacology

There have been over 18 family studies of OCD during the past 70 years but, due to methodological differences, the familial aspects of the disorder remain controversial. Family studies look for the prevalence of the disorder among the biological relatives of the probands (i.e. individuals who are affected by OCD) and the prevalence is then compared with that seen in the general population or in a control group. The latter are usually unaffected subjects or relatives of those with OCD. Despite the limitations of the studies, most have found a significant increase in the rates of OCD among the first-degree relatives of the probands when compared with the general population. Similarly, there is evidence from family studies of patients with chronic motor tics and Tourette syndrome that the rates of these conditions, and OCD, are higher among the relatives of patients with Tourette syndrome. More recent studies have suggested that some of these cases are familial but unrelated to tics...

Movement Disorders

Movement disorders involve abnormal, insufficient, or excessive motor activity. Most of the movement disorders involve stiffness, rigidity, bradykinesia (slow movements), tremors, tics, gait difficulties, and loss of control of movements. The most common movement disorder in neurology is Parkinson's disease, which is by far the most studied and well-understood. Other conditions include Tourette's syndrome, tremors, and myoclonus. Parkinson's disease is characterized by resting tremor (a tremor that worsens at rest, compared to during activity), cogwheel rigidity (rigidity that, in the arms, can be felt with movement showing stiffness, then giving way, then restiffening), slowing of

Sixty-seven percent of persons with primary OCD can expect to have a major depression during their lifetimes, and typically 31 of them at any given time. OCD also has a demonstrated concurrence with Tourette syndrome that probably results from shared neurobiological factors. OCD patients may have a delusional component to their condition, which at times may be so intense as to resemble psychosis and even require antipsychotic medication. It is not certain however as to whether there is any increased occurrence of true psychosis among these patients. Patients with OCD do have a high rate of concurrent anxiety disorders such as social phobia, specific phobia, and panic disorder.
