This study will evaluate neurofeedback as a new treatment of Tourette Disorder or Chronic Tic Disorder. The aim of this study is to train patients to control activity in a region of their brain that has been associated with the urge to tic. Patients will be given direct feedback regarding activity in this brain area while undergoing functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scanning, and will try to learn to control activity in the region during these feedback sessions. Participants will be compensated with $600 cash over the course of the entire study.
