Functional tics on the rise

Following his talk on atypical tic cases during our last, virtual meeting in October 2021, (Plenary session on functional, “Tourette-like” behaviours exacerbated by COVID-19 pandemic), Dr Nagy prepares this clear and comprehensive presentation on functional tics; sudden increase, diagnostic difficulties, etiology, treatment & next steps.

Introduction excerpt:

What they are not:

Functional tics are not generated by the neurobiological underpinnings behind neurodevelopmental (ND) tics.

The problem?

  • They look the same
  • There is no objective test (e.g. electrophysiology) for either type
  • No diagnosis should be based on exclusion (e.g. Espay et al., 2018)

Get in touch with Dr Nagy.
