What is Tourette Syndrome?

Tourette syndrome is a neurological disorder characterized by repetitive, involuntary movements and vocalizations which are called “tics.” The disorder is named for Dr. Georges Gilles de la Tourette, a pioneering French neurologist who first described this condition in the case of an 86-year old French woman way back in 1885. While the first documented and official case revolved around an elderly woman, modern day psychology shows that the earliest symptoms of the disorder are noticed between the ages of three to nine years old. It occurs equally in all ethnic groups, but males are affected about three to four times more than females.
