This week, we are going to talk about:
what these studies say
what is there a correlation between neurotransmitter levels and tics
what does this mean for your family?
We will also cover what neurotransmitters are and what role they play in your body.
Sixty consecutive admissions were assessed for perceived stress, emotional dysregulation, severity of obsessions and compulsions, anxiety, depression, attention deficit disorder, and tic expression at a TD clinic, in a university-affiliated pediatric hospital. The results indicated that stress and emotion dysregulation were significantly related to both tic expression and severity of comorbidities.
What is this study missing?
Stressors beyond emotional: environmental, physical, biological
What is causing emotional dysregulation? Talk about the stress of inflammation on mood. Is it really the emotions or the underlying stressors driving the emotions?
