Suggest you start with the homepage for the national Tourette Syndrome
As to the biochemical changes, you'll find some info there on the
current research on dopaminergic dysfunction that has been observed.
TSA also has literature available/reprints that you can order. Write
them at tourette at ix.netcom.com to ask for their catalog, or call them
As to other primates, there is one study that has reported TS in
horses, but I am not aware of any other species, offhand. Dogs,
however, do have a fairly common tic (acral lick tic), but one tic
does not TS make.
Hope the above helps.
