Tics are one of the most common neuropsychiatric disorders in children. Major role in the etiology of the disease plays a lack of work dopaminergic system, which leads to impaired attention, self-control and behavioral inhibition, reduced control of motor activity and the appearance of excessive, uncontrolled movements. Under the influence of levetiracetam, probably there is a change of neurotransmitter systems with stimulation of inhibitory mechanisms, which leads to rapid clinical and neurophysiological effects.
