Disorders of motor control are frequently complicated by a combination of neurologic and psychiatric symptoms. Understanding dysfunction of human motor and impulse control, mood, attention, and other cognitive functions requires a multidisciplinary approach combining scientific and clinical expertise.

The NOMADS collaborative working group aims to develop greater insight into the pathophysiology and best management of neuropsychiatric movement and associated disorders through interactive, monthly workshops. Regular participants include faculty, trainees, and staff from the University of Utah Departments of Bioengineering; Human Genetics; Neurology; Pharmacology & Toxicology; Psychiatry; Psychology; and Radiology. The meetings are open to all within the University of Utah and Brain Institute academic communities.

NOMADS meetings are held the third Wednesday of the month, from 11:30 to 12:30, in the Clinical Neurosciences Center first floor conference room.

Note that NOMADS developed out of the Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Tourette Syndrome & Attention-Deficit Disorders (OCTADS) group that was active throughout 2010 (click here for archived OCTADS page). NOMADS effectively replaced OCTADS in 2011.
