ESSTS Hannover 2019 lookbook

It's official, our organisers have a knack for music; the Danes compose, the Germans perform recitals. ;)

Survey: Is it time to rename Tourette's?

Controversy: Pro/con discussion with the audience followed by a poll.

This year, we have introduced live polling for the ePoster and oral presentation awards, but also for our first (though certainly not last!) controversy, titled:

“Is it time to rename Tourette syndrome?”


See the final results on the following chart.


In Jeremy Stern’s immortal and spontaneous comment it was “Brexit all over again”…;)


Of note, the discussion with the audience was lively and could easily have gone on for much longer. To be continued in Lausanne on this and other topics !
