Children between 5 and 10 Years of Age Are Needed for a Research Study on Tics

Detailed Study Description

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 compare those children who go on to develop Tourette Syndrome (TS) with children whose tics have resolved. There will be 3 study visits over approximately 12 months including MRI scans, plus annual clinical follow up visits.
