    Kevin W McCairn
    Unit on Neural Systems and Behavior, Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, Onna Son, Okinawa, Japan
    Neuroreport 23:206-10. 2012
    ..This finding supports the premise that deep brain stimulation targeted to the globus pallidus internus could be a viable treatment option for Tourette syndrome, and the use of pallidal stimulation for motor tics warrants further study...
