Methanocaldococcus: A genus of obligate anaerobic METHANOCALDOCOCCACEAE whose organisms are non-motile despite possessing long thin flagella. These methanogens are found in deep-sea vent and other hydrothermal environments.Tics: Habitual, repeated, rapid contraction of certain muscles, resulting in stereotyped individualized actions that can be voluntarily suppressed for only brief periods. They often involve the face, vocal cords, neck, and less often the extremities. Examples include repetitive throat clearing, vocalizations, sniffing, pursing the lips, and excessive blinking. Tics tend to be aggravated by emotional stress. When frequent they may interfere with speech and INTERPERSONAL RELATIONS. Conditions which feature frequent and prominent tics as a primary manifestation of disease are referred to as TIC DISORDERS.

Both multiple motor and one or more vocal tics need to be present with TICS occurring many times a day, nearly daily, over a period of more than one year. The onset is before age 18 and the disturbance is not due to direct physiological effects of a substance or a another medical condition. The disturbance causes marked distress or significant impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.

Pain may be initiated by stimulation of trigger points on the face, lips, or gums or by movement of facial muscles or chewing. Associated conditions include MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, vascular anomalies, ANEURYSMS, and neoplasms. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p187)Tic Disorders: Disorders characterized by recurrent TICS that may interfere with speech and other activities. Tics are sudden, rapid, nonrhythmic, stereotyped motor movements or vocalizations which may be exacerbated by stress and are generally attenuated during absorbing activities. Tic disorders are distinguished from conditions which feature other types of abnormal movements that may accompany another another condition. (From DSM-IV, 1994)Reversal Learning: Any situation where an animal or human is trained to respond differentially to two stimuli (e.g., approach and avoidance) under reward and punishment conditions and subsequently trained under reversed reward values (i.e., the approach which was previously rewarded is punished and vice versa).Cognitive Therapy: A direct form of psychotherapy based on the interpretation of situations (cognitive structure of experiences) that determine how an individual feels and behaves. It is based on the premise that cognition, the process of acquiring knowledge and forming beliefs, is a primary determinant of mood and behavior. The therapy uses behavioral and verbal techniques to identify and correct negative thinking that is at the root of the aberrant behavior.Attention Deficit Disorder with Hyperactivity: A behavior disorder originating in childhood in which the essential features are signs of developmentally inappropriate inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Although most individuals have symptoms of both inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity, one or the other pattern may be predominant. The disorder is more frequent in males than females. Onset is in childhood. Symptoms often attenuate during late adolescence although a minority experience the full complement of symptoms into mid-adulthood. (From DSM-V)Hospitals, Pediatric: Special hospitals which provide care for ill children.Compulsive Behavior: The behavior of performing an act persistently and repetitively without it leading to reward or pleasure. The act is usually a small, circumscribed behavior, almost ritualistic, yet not pathologically disturbing. Examples of compulsive behavior include twirling of hair, checking something constantly, not wanting pennies in change, straightening tilted pictures, etc.Syndrome: A characteristic symptom complex.Rage: Fury; violent, intense anger.Video Games: A form of interactive entertainment in which the player controls electronically generated images that appear on a video display screen. This includes video games played in the home on special machines or home computers, and those played in arcades.Game Theory: Theoretical construct used in applied mathematics to analyze certain situations in which there is an interplay between parties that may have similar, opposed, or mixed interests. In a typical game, decision-making "players," who each have their own goals, try to gain advantage over the other parties by anticipating each other's decisions; the game is finally resolved as a consequence of the players' decisions.Games, Experimental: Games designed to provide information on hypotheses, policies, procedures, or strategies.Software: Sequential operating programs and data which instruct the functioning of a digital computer.User-Computer Interface: The portion of an interactive computer program that issues messages to and receives commands from a user.Internet: A loose confederation of computer communication networks around the world.

Clinical manifestations include hypersensitivity pneumonitis (ALVEOLITIS, EXTRINSIC ALLERGIC); allergic rhinitis (RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, PERENNIAL); ASTHMA; infections, skin eruptions, and mucous membrane irritation syndromes. Current usage tends to be less restrictive with regard to the type of building and delineation of complaints. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)Irritable Bowel Syndrome: A disorder with chronic or recurrent colonic symptoms without a clearcut etiology. This condition is characterized by chronic or recurrent ABDOMINAL PAIN, bloating, MUCUS in FECES, and an erratic disturbance of DEFECATION.Behavioral Medicine: The interdisciplinary field concerned with the development and integration of behavioral and biomedical science, knowledge, and techniques relevant to health and illness and the application of this knowledge and these techniques to prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation.Mental Health Services: Organized services to provide mental health care.United StatesHealth Personnel: Men and women working in the provision of health services, whether as individual practitioners or employees of health institutions and programs, whether or not professionally trained, and whether or not subject to public regulation.

... have not been fully elucidated. Tourette syndrome (also called "Tourette's syndrome", "Tourette's disorder", "Gilles de la Tourette syndrome", "GTS" or "TS") is an inherited neurological disorder with onset in childhood, characterized by the presence of multiple motor tics and at least one phonic tic, which characteristically wax and wane. Tourette's syndrome occurs along a spectrum of tic disorders, which includes transient tics and chronic tics. The exact cause of Tourette's is unknown, but it is well established that both genetic and environmental factors are involved. Genetic studies have proved that the overwhelming majority of cases of Tourette's are inherited, although the exact mode of inheritance is not yet known, and no gene has been identified. Tics are believed to result from dysfunction in the thalamus, basal ganglia, and frontal cortex of the brain, involving abnormal activity of the brain chemical, or neurotransmitter, ...
... is found among all social, racial and ethnic groups and has been reported in all parts of the world; it is three to four times more frequent among males than among females. The tics of Tourette syndrome begin in childhood and tend to remit or subside with maturity; thus, a diagnosis may no longer be warranted for many adults, and observed prevalence rates are higher among children than adults. As children pass through adolescence, about one-quarter become tic-free, almost one-half see their tics diminish to a minimal or mild level, and less than one-quarter have persistent tics. Only 5 to 14% of adults experience worse tics in adulthood than in childhood. Up to 1% of the overall population experiences tic disorders, including chronic tics and transient tics of childhood. Chronic tics affect 5% of children, and transient tics affect up to ...

... (from the Greek κλάζω ("klazo")-to scream) refers to compulsive shouting; it has features resembling the complex tics such as echolalia, palilalia and coprolalia seen in tic disorders, but has been seen in people with encephalitis lethargica, alcohol abuse and carbon monoxide poisoning. It was first reported by L. Benedek in 1925 in a patient with postencephalitic parkinsonism. Little is known about the condition, and few cases have been reported. Klazomania shares some features with vocal tics seen in tic disorders including Tourette syndrome (TS). Klazomania was described in a 2006 journal review as a cause of tics differentiated from TS (tourettism), attributed to infectious processes (encephalitis) rather than TS. A 1996 case report on one patient by Bates et al suggested klazomania was a vocal tic. Klazomania is similar to other complex tics including echolalia, palilalia and coprolalia. It is defined as compulsive shouting, which ...
Only about 10% of Tourette's patients exhibit coprolalia, but it tends to attract more attention than any other symptom.. There is a paucity of epidemiological studies of Tourette syndrome; ascertainment bias affects clinical studies. Studies on people with Tourette's often "came from tertiary referral samples, the sickest of the sick". Further, the criteria for a diagnosis of Tourette's were changed in 2000, when the impairment criterion was removed from the DSM-IV-TR for all tic disorders, resulting in increased diagnoses of milder cases. Further, many clinical studies suffer from small sample size. These factors combine to render older estimates of coprolalia-biased towards clinical populations of the more severe cases-outdated. An international, multi-site database of 3,500 individuals with Tourette syndrome drawn from clinical samples found 14% of patients with Tourette's accompanied by comorbid conditions had coprolalia, while only 6% of those with uncomplicated ("pure") ...
The TIC and TOC complexes are translocons located in the chloroplast of a eukaryotic cell, that is, protein complexes that facilitate the transfer of proteins in and out through the chloroplast's membrane. The TIC complex (translocon on the inner chloroplast membrane) is located in the inner envelope of the chloroplast. The TOC complex (translocon on the outer chloroplast membrane) is located in the outer envelope of the chloroplast. It transports proteins that are synthesized in the cytoplasm across the chloroplast's membrane. This protein complex is functionally similar to the TOM/TIM Complex located on the outer and inner membranes of the mitochondria, in the sense that it too transports proteins across multiple membranes and into the lumen of an organelle. Both complexes (TOC/TIC) are GTPases, that is, they must both hydrolyze GTP in order to power the translocation. The chloroplast also harnesses the power of an electrochemical gradient using protons. The gradient is only used to power ...
... is a tic consisting of involuntarily performing obscene or forbidden gestures, or inappropriate touching. Copropraxia comes from the Greek κόπρος meaning "feces" and πράξις meaning "action". Copropraxia is a rare characteristic of Tourette syndrome. Related terms are coprolalia, referring to involuntary usage of profane words, and coprographia, making vulgar writings or drawings.

La classificació moderna dels histricomorfs, també coneguts com Entodacrya o Ctenohystrica, és una hipòtesi taxonòmica que uneix els ctenodactilomorf i els histricògnats. Aquesta relació es veu considerablement recolzada per les característiques morfològiques i moleculars. Si és certa, aquesta hipòtesis invalida la visió tradicional dels esciürògnats, ja que esdevé un grup parafilètic. Els histricomorfs, o com a mínim els caviomorfs, de vegades no són considerats rosegadors. Malgrat això, la majoria de estudis genètics i moleculars confirmen la monofília dels rosegadors. Els suport de la polifília dels rosegadors sembla ser producte de l'atracció entre branques llargues. Els histricomorfs van aparèixer a Sud-amèrica durant l'Eocè, un continent que prèviament havia tingut als metateris, als xenartres i als meridiungulats com als únics mamífers no voladors. Aparentment hi arribaren des de l'Àfrica a través de l'Oceà Atlàntic per mitjà de la ...
Dieta paleolítica és un règim dietètic modern. És un pla nutricional basat en l'antiga dieta centrada en plantes silvestres i animals que consumien habitualment les espècies d'Homo durant el període Paleolític-un període d'uns 2.5 milions d'anys de durada acabat al voltant de fa uns 10.000 anys amb el desenvolupament de l'agricultura. És igualment un terme per a referir-se a la dieta ancestral de l'home que vivia durant el paleolític. Centrada al voltant dels aliments disponibles actualment, la "contemporània" dieta paleolítica consisteix bàsicament en: carn magra, peix, verdura, fruita, arrels i en sentit ampli fruits secs; i exclou: cereals, llegums, productes làctics, sal, sucre refinat, i olis processats. Va ser començat a popularitzar a mitjans de la dècada de 1970 pel gastroenteròleg anomenat Walter L. Voegtlin, aquest concepte nutricional va ser exposat i adaptat per un gran nombre d'autors i investigadors en diversos llibres i revistes ...

- For example, if the tic manifests as head jerking backwards, the patient is taught to contract the neck flexors with the chin down and in when there is an urge to tic. (cnnh.org)
- In some cases, the side effects can be worse than the tics. (cdc.gov)
- But such drugs usually don't eliminate all the tics, and worse, they can often have side effects, acting as sedatives, causing weight gain and impairing cognitive function. (bio-medicine.org)
- What makes tics worse/more frequent? (e-hospital.co.uk)
- When people try to hold back their tics, it can cause stress and the tic may become worse. (cdc.gov)
- During the year of follow-up, "clinically significant tics for the first time (i.e., moderate or worse)" developed in 23.6% of children who took the active drug … but also in 22.2% of children who were on placebo! (wustl.edu)
- Only the double-blind, placebo-controlled design allowed us to realize that it wasn't the drug at all-that child's tics were going to get worse anyway. (wustl.edu)
- To develop the best treatment plan, people with tics, parents, and health care providers should work closely with one another, and with everyone involved in treatment and support-which may include teachers, childcare providers, coaches, therapists, and other family members. (cdc.gov)
- The researchers suggest that people with tics that persist into adulthood may have a more chronic form of the disorder that is more difficult to treat. (bmedreport.com)
- In addition, parents were taught how to promote these management strategies in their children and to minimize stressful situations in their children's environments associated with tic worsening. (bio-medicine.org)
- The Children's e-Hospital now has an online CBiT service which you can book using our 24/7 online booking service . (e-hospital.co.uk)
- Interestingly, tics can persist in all stages of sleep ( 1 , 2 ). (frontiersin.org)
- Although most individuals with TS are able to suppress their tics temporarily, the urges usually persist and build, becoming so intolerable that the tics are ultimately expressed. (medicalhomeportal.org)
- For some adults, the tics persist and can be difficult to control. (bmedreport.com)
