Tourette syndrome can be a nerve-wracking condition, but there are effective treatments for sufferers, a new American Academy of Neurology guideline says.

Tourette is a neurodevelopmental disorder that begins in childhood and causes involuntary vocalizations and repetitive movements known as tics.

The new study included nearly 600 patients with dystonia or spasticity who had been receiving botulinum toxin type A (commonly known as "Botox") for about three to five years.

The researchers found that about 15 p...

Self-administered magnetic pulses from a hand-held device may help head off debilitating migraines, researchers report.

This new way to approach migraine headaches is called "single pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation" (sTMS). Neurologists and psychiatrists have long used the technology to diagnose and treat patients.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration had already ap...
