Research on Tourette syndrome is growing at an ever-increasing pace. Recent insights have come from studies of natural history, epidemiology, animal models, electrophysiology, neuroimaging, pharmacology, neuropsychology, and treatments ranging from psychotherapeutic to surgical. Nevertheless, several important mysteries remain, including the following: “Why do tics tend to start at ages 5–10? Why are they more common in boys? Why do they tend to improve during sleep? Why do tics usually improve in early adulthood? How accurately can we predict outcome for an individual patient? Which patients need which treatments? Is secondary prevention possible? What is the pathophysiology associated with tics and their progression throughout development?” We invite contributions on the clinical features, treatment, or pathophysiology of Tourette syndrome and other tic disorders.
