New treatment study for Tourette syndrome
We are now enrolling people with TS, ages 15-64, in a new treatment study. The research study will test electrical stimulation of a nerve in the wrist. Colleagues from the University of Nottingham in the UK tried this with some early signs of success. We will test two ways of delivering such stimulation during a 1-hour session on each of 2 days at least a week apart. Further information about the study is available on this page. If you have questions, or to enroll, please contact us:
