Found (30) clinical trials

Dr. Kevin Black is conducting a study that looks at children between the ages of 5 and 10 who are experiencing a recent onset of tics. Tics are repetitive, involuntary sounds or movements like eye blinking, sniffing, abdominal tensing or making small noises. The purpose of this research is to ...

Phase N/A

Pediatric Subjects are asked to participate in a research study to evaluate the effectiveness, safety, and tolerability of an investigational study drug for the treatment of Tourette Syndrome.  This research study is being conducted by Montefiore Medical Center.

Phase N/A

We invite boys and girls aged 6 to 17 who have a diagnosis of Tourette syndrome to see if they may qualify for the T-Force Gold Study. The primary purpose of this research study is to determine the safety, tolerability, and effectiveness of an investigational medication for Tourette syndrome.Visit to learn ...


This study will compare the brains of participants with and without tics. Total duration of the study will be 9 to 11 hours on 2 or 3 different days. The screening visit will take 3.5 to 4 hours. There will be an MRI scan, cognitive and behavioral testing, and questionnaires. ...

Investigation of Neurofeedback With Real-Time fMRI in Healthy Volunteers and Patients With Hyperkinetic Movement Disorders

Objective The objective of this study is to see if healthy volunteers and patients with hyperkinetic movement disorders such as Tic Disorders (TD) including Tourette Syndrome (TS) are able to learn how to alter their brain activity using feedback during functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and whether such feedback training ...

Parent Behavioral Training for Disruptive Behaviors in Tourette Syndrome

Disruptive behaviors occur in 80% of children with Tourette Syndrome, and can be more disabling than the tics themselves. The aim of this study is to assess the efficacy of a parent training program to control disruptive behaviors in children with Tourette Syndrome. In addition, social cognition will be examined ...
