Psyche Tourette Syndrome HY Points

Here's few high yield points about Tourette syndrome:
  • It is associated with decreased dopamine in caudate nucleus.
  • There's a genetic relationship with ADHD and obsessive compulsive disorder.
  • Haloperidol and other antipsychotics useful for treatment.

The association with decreased dopamine doesn't make sense because the treatment is to block dopamine. Maybe it is associated with increased dopamine?

In High-Yield Behavioral Science, Table 9-3, it is mentioned that Tourette syndrome is associated with decreased serotoin metabolites such as 5-HIAA.

Patients with TS have increased density of the presynaptic dopamine transporter and an increased density of postsynaptic D2 dopamine receptors, suggesting increased uptake and release of dopamine.
