Motoric and verbal tics (Tourette syndrome), compulsion syndromes and attention deficit syndromes often appear simultaneously in patients and nearly always lead to severe curtailments of daily life. Angela Scholz, herself the mother of a child with Tourette syndrome, as well as other affected persons describe the various symptoms of this neuropsychiatric disorder and how one can best deal with them on a daily basis. The search for assistance usually has to be coordinated by the afflicted themselves as experts rarely have a comprehensive solution to offer. That is why it is of utmost importance that the affected persons report on their experiences and the strategies they have developed to deal with their affliction.In addition, this volume offers a list of frequently asked questions on this chronic disorder along with the competent answers of experts in the field. This concerns problems met with at school, at work, in one s social environment and at home, dealing also with the useof drugs. This guarantees that information is available from both sides - from that of those affected and from the medical specialists - to ensure proper treatment and care for persons with Tourette syndrome and the accompanying symptoms.The book also has a glossary of technical terms as well as addresses for obtaining further information and help.

The one-stop resource on deep brain stimulation for functional neurosurgeons! Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is used to modulate dysfunctional circuits in the brain with stimulation pulses applied to specific target areas of the brain. Globally, DBS procedures have been most commonly performed for Parkinson's disease and essential tremor, but there are now new and growing research efforts studying DBS for psychiatric disorders and epilepsy. Deep Brain Stimulation: Techniques and Practices written by the Society for Innovative Neuroscience in Neurosurgery along with Dr. William S. Anderson and distinguished experts presents the latest DBS approaches. The book begins with a history of DBS, general frame-based techniques, patient selection primarily for movement disorders, multidisciplinary collaboration, and ethical considerations. Subsequent chapters detail diverse technologies and disease-specific treatment for Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, dystonia, OCD, epilepsy, major depression, Tourette syndrome, emerging psychiatric indications, and pediatric applications. Key highlights Lead placement techniques utilizing currently available customized platforms and robotics Microelectrode recording and image-based direct targeting with MRI and CT to enhance lead placement Lesioning methods including radiofrequency, and MR-guided focused ultrasound Discussion of recent innovations in tractography to delineate white matter tracts in the brain and closed loop stimulation DBS has helped thousands of patients with intractable conditions, allowing for a programmable therapy with durable treatment effect. This remarkable guide provides the essentials for functional neurosurgeons to pursue intraoperative research opportunities in this growing subspecialty and incorporate DBS into clinical practice.
I believe that we will win. In the summer of 2014, Tim Howard became an overnight sensation after more than 10 years as one of America's leading professional soccer players. His record-breaking 15 saves for the United States national team against Belgium in the World Cup electrified a nation that had only recently woken up to the Beautiful Game after decades of hibernation. An estimated TV audience of 21 million viewers in the United States - larger than those of the NBA and NHL finals - watched Howard's heroic performance against the heavily favored Belgians in which he repelled shots with his hands, feet, legs, knees, and even his signature long beard. Suddenly an athlete who had toiled in relative anonymity for much of his career became the star of his own Internet meme ("Things Tim Howard Could Save": from Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" to the Titanic) and fielded personal calls from the likes of President Barack Obama ("You guys did us proud.... I don't know how you are going to survive the mobs when you come back home, man. You'll have to shave your beard so they don't know who you are"). In this inspiring and candid memoir, the beloved US and Everton goalkeeper finally allows himself to do something that he would never do on the field: He drops his guard. Howard opens up for the first time about how a hyperactive kid from New Jersey with Tourette syndrome defied the odds to become one of the greatest American keepers in history. He recalls his childhood, being raised by a single mother who instilled in him a love of all sports - he was also a standout high school basketball player - and a devout faith that helped him cope with a disorder that manifested itself with speech and facial tics, compulsive behavior, and extreme sensitivity to light, noise, and touch. The Keeper is also a chronicle of the personal sacrifices he's made for his career, including the ultimate dissolution of Howard 1. Language: English. Narrator: J. D. Jackson.

A state-of-the-art guide to evolving functional neurosurgery approaches from world-renowned innovators Functional neurosurgery focuses on improving the lives of patients with epilepsy, movement disorders, pain, and psychiatric illnesses. In recent years, approaches ranging from open surgery to minimally invasive techniques have been leveraged to improve daily functioning and quality of life in people struggling with painful, highly disruptive, and/or treatment-resistant symptoms. These approaches focus on reducing or eliminating seizures, alleviating pain, decreasing abnormal movements or lessening debilitating symptoms associated with specific psychiatric disorders. Neurosurgical Operative Atlas: Functional Neurosurgery, Third Edition, by renowned functional neurosurgeons Robert Gross, Nicholas Boulis, and esteemed contributors reflects the latest advances in functional and stereotactic neurosurgical approaches. The entire atlas has been streamlined and updated with new content, including the use of stereotactic surgery to treat obsessive compulsive disorder, Tourette syndrome, and major depression. Key Highlights A full spectrum of epilepsy treatment techniques, including intracranial monitoring with stereo-electroencephalography, selective amygdalohippocampectomy, MRI-guided stereotactic laser ablation, vagus nerve stimulation, and more Deep brain stimulation (DBS) for Parkinson's disease, tremor, dystonia, epilepsy and medically intractable pain syndromes, with in-depth implantation guidance The use of neurosurgical and interventional techniques to treat pain including percutaneous ablation, peripheral nerve stimulation, spinal cord and motor cortex stimulators, and pumps More than 300 high quality color illustrations detail anatomy and surgical procedures This is the ultimate guide on functional neurosurgery for managing a wide range of incapacitating neurological conditions.

Tourette syndrome is a disorder of the nervous system that involves involuntary vocal and motor tics--sudden, rapid, repeated sounds and movements. Tourette is usually first identified in children between the ages of 7 and 10, and boys are four times as likely as girls to have the disorder. The disorder can be mild or severe, with about 10 percent of Americans having a mild form, according to the National Institutes of Health. Tourette Syndrome explores the signs, symptoms, causes, and treatment of this bizarre and misunderstood neurological condition, which is often referred to as a 'tic' disorder. Following an overview of Tourette syndrome, the book details its history, symptoms, biological causes and triggers of tic episodes, epidemiology, and current forms of treatment. Ways in which parents and children cope with Tourette syndrome and its social stigma, as well as psychiatric conditions that are commonly associated with it, are also discussed.
As sites of action for drugs used to treat schizophrenia and Parkinson&#8217;s disease, dopamine receptors are among the most validated drug targets for neuropsychiatric disorders. Dopamine receptors are also drug targets or potential targets for other disorders such as substance abuse, depression, Tourette&#8217;s syndrome, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Updated from the successful first edition, 'The Dopamine Receptors' serves as a reference work on dopamine receptors while also highlighting the areas of research that are most active today. To achieve this goal, authors have written chapters that set a broad area of research in its historical context, rather than focusing on the research output of their own laboratories.
