Tourette syndrome (TS) is a developmental neuropsychiatric disorder and is characterized by multiple motor and vocal tics. To understand the developmental cause of such changes, we investigated microstructural changes of cortical thickness , cortical sulcus, cortical curvature, and LGI in TS children by using sagittal three-dimensional T1-weighted image (3DT1WI) Magnetization. The TS children had the significant differences in cortical thickness, cortical sulcus, cortical curvature, and LGI compared with controls.
