Motor inhibition in patients with Gilles de la Tourette syndrome: functional activation patterns as revealed by EEG coherence.

Abstract:

There is considerable evidence that Gilles de la Tourette syndrome (TS) is due to frontal-striatal dysfunction. Here we determine whether adaptive cortical changes occur that might ameliorate the effects of this dysfunction. Specifically we test the hypothesis that increased interactions between selected cortical areas may help compensate through strengthened inhibition of inappropriate motor responses. To this end we recorded EEG in nine unmedicated patients with TS and nine age-matched heal...
