|International Journal of Emergency Mental Health and Human Resilience is one of the multidimensional open access journals on Tourette syndrome. The journals of OMICS International are periodical publications covering the deep insights of science, intended to communicate with the scientific community to further the progress of mankind. Open Access journals not only give royalty to free literature, but also reduce costs for paper-copy production, physical storage, and distribution through digitalized copies.
The symptoms of Tourette syndrome usually occur in the head and neck area and may progress to include muscles of the trunk and extremities. Motor tics generally precede the development of vocal tics and simple tics often precede complex tics. Most patients of Tourette syndrome experience peak tic severity before the mid-teen years with improvement for the majority of patients in the late teen years and early adulthood. Tics of Tourette syndrome are believed to result from dysfunction in cortical and subcortical regions, the thalamus, basal ganglia and frontal cortex. Neuroanatomical models implicate failures in circuits connecting the brain's cortex and sub cortex, and imaging techniques implicate the basal ganglia and frontal cortex.
