BBC Report about research into TS (28 Jan 2013)

Young people with Tourette Syndrome have been given new hope as a result of pioneering work by scientists at the University of Nottingham. Scientists involved in the study believe they can help patients by using brain imaging to diagnose the disorder and predict outcomes.

Professor Stephen Jackson and his team are building a 'brain atlas' to map the neurological development of people with TS and help to suggest treatments.

Inside Out talked to Hannah Prentice from Birmingham and Spencer Forbes from Nottinghamshire who volunteered to take part in the study.

"People need to know that TS is involuntary. We don't need pity, but some will always need help, support and understanding"
