Investigators at the Yale Child Study Center are recruiting teens with tics for a new study on the potential effectiveness of biofeedback in reducing tics. The purpose of this study is to determine whether individuals can gain control over a region of their brain known as the supplementary motor area when provided with feedback about activity in that brain region, and to investigate if increased control over the brain area translates into an improvement in tic symptoms. Details of the study can be found on the Research Studies Seeking Participants page in the section on Tourette Syndrome.
