The aim of TACTICS is to identify, over a 5-year period, the neural, genetic and molecular factors involved in the pathogenesis of compulsivity in

  • normally developing children and adolescents,
  • high risk samples, i.e. children and adolescents with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorders (ADHD), and
  • children and adolescents with specific disorders, such as autism spectrum disorders (ASD), obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD), impulse control disorders (ICD) and behavioral addictions.


The TACTICS project concluded in 2018. Read the final summary report of its key results & impact!
