Tourette Disorder and Sleep.
Sleep and chronotype in adults with persistent tic disorders.
Impairment and obsessive-compulsive symptoms play a role in sleep disturbance in adults with PTDs, and may be intervention targets, which may suggest the utility of interventions to advance chronotype.
Morning light therapy in adults with Tourette’s disorder
Findings showed some benefits following brief light therapy in TD; further exploration of the impact of spectral tuning the photic environment as part of treatment for TD subjects is warranted.
Candidate Genes and Pathways Associated with Gilles de la Tourette Syndrome—Where Are We?
To understand the genetic components of GTS etiopathology, an extensive review of the literature is conducted, compiling the candidate susceptibility genes identified through various genetic approaches.
Insomnia in Tourette Syndrome and Chronic Tic Disorder
Insomnia is common in Tourette syndrome (TS) and chronic tic disorder (CTD), but precise prevalence estimates are lacking.
Course of Tic Disorders Over the Lifespan
The safety and efficacy of behavior therapy for tics, together with prospective indicators of early prognosis, make feasible the possibility of bettering the lifetime course of tic disorders with early intervention.
Coping with Tics in School and with Peers
Tics often draw negative attention and may interfere with social and academic performance. When enduring a year or longer (“persistent”), tic disorders are usually associated with one or more nontic
Tourette syndrome research highlights from 2017 [ version 1 ; peer review : 3 approved ]
This is the fourth yearly article in the Tourette Syndrome Research Highlights series, summarizing research from 2017 relevant to Tourette syndrome and other tic disorders. The authors briefly


Cassette EEG Sleep Recordings in Gilles de la Tourette Syndrome
Outpatient sleep was recorded in 20 patients newly diagnosed with Tourette syndrome utilizing a 4-channel cassette EEG system, and sleep fragmentation and loss of slow wave sleep was most marked in TS patients with attention deficit-hyperactivity.
Decreased sleep quality and increased sleep related movements in patients with Tourette's syndrome
The increased rate of tics during REM sleep parallels the overall increased movement activity of patients during REM as well as non-REM sleep, which may be attributable to a state of hyperarousal rather than a disturbed cholinergic system.
Sleep features in Tourette's syndrome, neuroacanthocytosis and Huntington's chorea
Sleep, anxiety and psychiatric symptoms in children with Tourette syndrome and tic disorders.
A controlled study of Tourette syndrome. VI. Early development, sleep problems, allergies, and handedness.
It is concluded that when there is a clearly defined genetic cause of ADD and learning disorders, it is not associated with an increased frequency of allergies or left-handedness.
Sleep in Tourette Syndrome
Neglected links between the neurobiology of sleep and the psychophysiology of TS/TD and their psychiatric comorbidity are highlighted, and future trends in sleep research on TS/ TD are proposed.
The effect of sleep on the dyskinetic movements of Parkinson's disease, Gilles de la Tourette syndrome, Huntington's disease, and torsion dystonia.
The rare appearance of the different dyskinesias and normal movements under similar circumstances during sleep could be a result of common effects on the generator systems or changes in the excitability of the final common motor pathway.
