The MDS Presidential Perspective: Tics and Tourette Syndrome course focuses on Dr. Jankovic's interest in the study of Toureet Syndrome. Dr. Jankovic has been fascinated by Tourette Syndrome for over 40 years largely because of its heterogeneous and variable expression, rich phenomenology spanning motor, behavioral and psychiatric manifestations occurring in children and adults, still enigmatic in terms of its genetic and pathophysiologic mechanisms, but clearly treatable.
