  • What is Tourette Syndrome?
    Over 100 years ago, the French physician Georges Gilles de la Tourette wrote an article in which he described nine individuals who, since childhood, had suffered from involuntary movements and sounds and compulsions to exhibit unusual rituals or acts. In his honor, this constellation of symptoms was named Gilles de la Tourette's Syndrome, but over time, it became known as just Tourette Syndrome. But it is not just the name that has shifted over time. The very definition of Tourette Syndrome and our understanding of it have also gone through significant shifts
