5th International Scientific Symposium on Tourette Syndrome to Focus on Latest Research and Treatment
Date:5/28/2009

Rare Opportunity to Benefit from Most Current Findings

BAYSIDE, N.Y., May 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Once every five years the most prestigious and internationally renowned scientists and medical experts on Tourette Syndrome (TS) -- the complex neurological disorder that causes involuntary movements and sounds -- convene to disseminate and share the latest advances and findings about this baffling condition.

As part of its basic mission to identify current research and treatment advances and to facilitate meaningful networking among basic and clinical scientists, the national Tourette Syndrome Association (TSA) is sponsoring the 5th International Scientific Symposium on Tourette Syndrome from June 12-14 at the Downtown Marriott in New York City.

Since the last such Symposium in 2004, numerous advances have been made in both understanding the biological underpinnings as well as the application of new and refined approaches to clinical care. Also, due to the highly complex scientific and treatment issues relevant to TS, the meeting program has been developed specifically to provide information that will be of interest to both basic and clinical researchers as well as allied medical practitioners. Specifically, the Symposium planning committee has chosen a series of program topics designed to set the agenda for future TS research initiatives and also with a view toward improving clinical care.

Among the critical issues to be discussed at this meeting will be the emerging and experimental procedure deep brain stimulation (DBS), the development of animal models and advances in cognitive behavioral therapy for reducing tic symptoms.

The Symposium co-chairs are Peter J. Hollenbeck, Ph.D., Purdue University; Jonathan Mink, M.D., Ph.D., University of Rochester Medical Center and John T. Walkup, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine
