Weill Cornell Medical College Research Opportunity for Children with Chronic Tics or Tourette Syndrome

We are looking for children and young adults ages 7-25 that make sounds or movements that they cannot control like eye blinking, facial grimaces, arm or leg twitches, throat clearing, sniffling or other noises.

If you meet this criteria, you may be eligible to participate in a WCMC research study. The study involves:

  • 5 visits
  • Medical and psychological evaluations
  • Fitting for a therapeutic dental appliance
