Brain areas coactivating with motor cortex during chronic motor tics and intentional movements.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Chronic tic disorders are characterized by motor tics that are often preceded by premonitory urges to tic. Functional neuroimaging studies have documented brain activity patterns prior to and during tics, but these studies have not examined whether the activation patterns differ from those seen in normal control subjects performing similar acts… (More)
