Neuropaediatrics, Tourette syndrome.
Main research areas
Since 2005, we have followed a large clinical cohort of children and adolescents with Tourette syndrome longitudinally with focus on symptom severity, comorbidity, neuropsychological consequences, neuroimaging and genetics.
Since 2014, we have offered a new non-pharmacological treatment for tics, behavioural therapy, and evaluate ongoing its effect in a research project.
Since 2017, we have established a cohort of twins with Tourette syndrome, who we examine clinically and genetically.
Besides Tourette syndrome, I am interested in other neuropaediatric topics and I am planning research projects on cerebral palsy, headache and sleep disorders.
