Background: The Brief Obsessive Compulsive Scale (BOCS), derived from the Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale (Y-BOCS) and the childrens version (CY-BOCS), is a short self-report tool used to aid in the assessment of obsessive-compulsive symptoms and diagnosis of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It is widely used throughout child, adolescent and adult psychiatry settings in Sweden but has not been validated up to date. Aim: The aim of the current study was to examine the psychometric properties of the BOCS amongst a psychiatric outpatient population. Method: The BOCS consists of a 15-item Symptom Checklist including three items (hoarding, dysmorphophobia and self-harm) related to the DSM-5 category Obsessive-compulsive related disorders, accompanied by a single six-item Severity Scale for obsessions and compulsions combined. It encompasses the revisions made in the Y-BOCS-II severity scale by including obsessive-compulsive free intervals, extent of avoidance and excluding the resistance ...

N2 - Background: Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common and debilitating neuropsychiatric illness thought to involve abnormal connectivity of widespread brain networks, including frontal-striatal-thalamic circuits. At least half of OCD cases arise in childhood and their underlying neuropathology may differ at least in part from that of adult-onset OCD. Yet, only a few studies have examined brain white matter (WM) integrity in childhood-onset OCD using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), and none have examined potential associations with age at onset.Results: In this study, 17 youth with OCD and 19 healthy ...
OBJECTIVES To identify neurodevelopmental differences in regional brain volume between medication-free paediatric obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) patients and controls at 2-year follow-up after cognitive behavioural therapy. METHODS We assessed 17 medication-free paediatric OCD patients (mean age 13.8 years; SD = 2.8; range 8.2-19.0) and 20 controls, matched on age and gender, with T1-weighted MR scans in a repeated measures design at three time points with intervals of 6 months and 2 years. Voxel based morphometry (VBM) was used to test whole brain voxel-wise for the effects of diagnosis and time on regional grey matter (GM) and white matter volumes. RESULTS GM volume of the orbitofrontal cortex showed a group × time interaction effect, driven by an increase of GM volume over the whole time period in OCD patients and a decrease in controls. When splitting the groups in two age groups (8-12 and 13-19 years) this interaction effect was only seen in the youngest age group. CONCLUSIONS
This paper presents the rationale, design, and methods of the Pediatric Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Treatment Study II (POTS II), which investigates two different cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT) augmentation approaches in children and adolescents who have experienced a partial response to pharmacotherapy with a serotonin reuptake inhibitor for OCD. The two CBT approaches test a single doctor versus dual doctor model of service delivery. A specific goal was to develop and test an easily disseminated protocol whereby child psychiatrists would provide instructions in core CBT procedures recommended for pediatric OCD (e.g., hierarchy development, in vivo exposure homework) during routine medical management of OCD (I-CBT). The conventional dual doctor CBT protocol consists of 14 visits over 12 weeks involving: (1) psychoeducation, (2), cognitive training, (3) mapping OCD, and (4) exposure with response prevention (EX/RP). I-CBT is a 7-session version of CBT that does not include imaginal exposure or

Brain glucose metabolism was investigated with PET and [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose, before and after a bifrontal stereotactic leukotomy in a 37 year old woman with refractory obsessive-compulsive disorder. A bilateral decrease in glucose metabolism was found in the orbital frontal cortex after psychosurgery. Glucose metabolism was decreased to a lesser degree in Brodmanns area 25, in the thalamus, and in the caudate nucleus. Clinical improvement in obsessive-compulsive disorder after stereotactic tractotomy seems to be associated with metabolic changes in the brain, in particular, in the orbital part of the frontal lobe.. ...

Patients with schizophrenia often experience comorbid obsessive-compulsive symptoms. Within these patients, a significant subgroup developed secondary obsessive-compulsive symptoms during treatment with clozapine. In this paper, we report on four cases in which adjunctive therapy with aripiprazole was tested to alleviate obsessive-compulsive symptoms in schizophrenia. All four patients had a significant improvement in obsessive-compulsive symptoms. The combination of clozapine and aripiprazole was well tolerated. This case series demonstrates the clinical efficacy of aripiprazole adjunctive therapy with clozapine in schizophrenic patients with comorbid obsessive-compulsive symptoms. Larger-sampled and controlled studies are required in order to test and confirm these observations.
While it is human nature to occasionally ruminate or overanalyze important decisions, these thought patterns normally dissipate quickly freeing us of those fleeting moments of inner turmoil. However, for those suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), letting go of repetitive thoughts is not so effortless. Relentless ideas, impulses, or images inundate the brain leaving the individual mentally imprisoned to an existence of recurrent, irrational thought patterns. These senseless obsessions often drive the individual to perform ritualistic behaviors or compulsions, in an effort to temporarily relieve their anxiety. Sufferers stagger through life with a sense of pure powerlessness against their disorder; fully aware that the behavior is abnormal, yet unable to stop.. Psychotropic medications such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and Anafranil and cognitive behavioral therapy are the conventional treatment options for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Sadly, the likelihood ...
Someone with obsessive-compulsive disorder has thoughts called obsessions. A thought that is an obsession will happen many times and is a thought that the person does not want to have. Different people will have different obsessive thoughts. Some people have obsessions about God, the Devil, or another religious figure hurting them or someone they love. Other people have obsessions about sex. They may think about things like kissing, having sex with, or touching people around them.[4] People with OCD may worry that they will act on these thoughts. Some people have obsessive-compulsive disorder without compulsions. This is called primarily obsessional OCD, or pure-O. It is thought that up to half of all people with obsessive-compulsive disorder have primarily obsessional OCD.[5] People with primarily obsessional OCD may have a third type of obsession; that is aggressive thoughts. People with aggressive thoughts may have obsessions about hurting or killing themselves or people around them. ...

Western atheists are the most frequent suffers of Severe Conservapedia obsessive compulsive disorder (SCOCD) which is a particularly grave and virulent form of COCD. A common symptom of Severe Conservapedia obsessive compulsive disorder (SCOCD) is the frequent repetition of the mantra none of Conservapedias content is changing peoples minds. Of course, this is quite ironic given that they are severely suffering from a host of COCD symptoms. And let us never forget, the bitten dog yelps the loudest! For example, SCOCD suffers often whine and bellyache about the content of the Conservapedia atheism and evolution articles despite the fact that they cannot find a single factual error in them. Yet, if they truly believe the articles are having no effect then why all the whining and bellyaching about these articles? In addition, they repeatedly plead to edit the atheism and evolution articles despite the fact they are quickly rebuffed and sometimes taunted for the foolishness of their requests. ...

No prior study to date has examined the comparisons of the structures that have been implicated in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) in patients with refractory OCD, those who are treatment-responded and healthy controls concurrently. Therefore, we performed a volumetric MRI study in patients with refractory OCD, those with treatment responding OCD and healthy controls. Morphometric MRI was used to compare in thirty patients with OCD and ten healthy controls. Of the patient group, ten were first applying patients, ten were treatment-responded and the rest were refractory OCD patients. As a whole group, OCD patients had increased white matter volume than healthy controls. First applying patients had significantly smaller left and right orbito-frontal cortex (OFC) volumes compared with treatment-responded patients and healthy controls, with a significant difference between refractory patients and treatment-responded patients and with no significant difference was found between the volume of ...
We report here that 42% of patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (a consecutive cohort of children and adolescents attending a specialist clinic) had circulating anti-basal antibodies. This is a highly significant finding, as these antibodies are uncommonly found in the control groups studied. In contrast, patients with the neurological disorder most robustly established as a post-streptococcal autoimmune disorder - Sydenhams chorea - almost always test positive for these antibodies using the same assays (Church et al, 2002). These findings demonstrate that a subgroup of people with obsessive-compulsive disorder have antibody findings similar to those seen in Sydenhams chorea, suggesting that autoimmunity many have a role in the genesis and/or maintenance of the former disorder. Only a few other studies have looked for anti-neuronal antibodies in obsessive-compulsive disorder. An indirect immunofluorescence method has been used in one small study of idiopathic disease, and did ...

The purpose of this study is to test the effect of a moderate-intensity aerobic exercise intervention for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) patients interested in reducing symptoms. The investigators expect that this project will contribute much needed knowledge about the role that aerobic exercise can play in managing the effects of OCD. If moderate-intensity aerobic exercise is efficacious in helping individuals with OCD manage obsessions and compulsions, this will establish that aerobic exercise may be a valuable adjunct to other OCD treatments such as medication and therapy ...
Objective: Hoarding may be an important symptom dimension in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Hoarding in OCD has been associated with poor insight, poorer response to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors than other OCD symptom dimensions, and a distinctive psychobiological profile. The clinical and genetic correlates of hoarding in OCD therefore deserve additional investigation. Method: Adult OCD patients (N = 315) underwent a comprehensive clinical assessment that included the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Axis I Disorders (Patient Edition) and for Diagnosis of Obsessive-Compulsive Spectrum Disorders. DNA extracted from venous blood (10-30 mL) in a Caucasian subset of the interviewed OCD patients (N = 204) and Caucasian controls (N = 169), including patients (N = 94) and controls (N = 138) of Afrikaner descent, was genotyped to investigate polymorphisms in genes involved in monoamine function and previously hypothesized to be relevant to OCD. Data were collected from 1998 ...
This chapter focuses on the overlap of repetitive, restricted, and/or stereotyped patterns of behavior, interests, and/or activities that characterize both autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and related obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorders (OCSDs) including obsessive-compulsive disorder, obsessive-compulsive personality disorder, body dysmorphic disorder, and trichotillomania. The chapter is organized as follows. First, it outlines the symptomatic commonalities in repetitive behaviors between ASD and other OCSDs. Next, it summarizes research findings related to the frequent comorbidity, similar course, and potentially overlapping genetic, neurobiological, and neuropsychological correlates across these disorders. Finally, it presents different approaches to subtyping the diverse symptoms that comprise the repetitive behavior domain. The identification of homogeneous subgroups will arm investigators with more power to uncover the unique pathogenesis that underlies each repetitive phenotype.
Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is relatively common. According to criteria in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th edition, it is characterized by recurrent and persistent thoughts; impulses, images (obsessions), or repetitive behaviour; or mental acts in response to an obsession (compulsions). 1 These obsessions and compulsions cause distress or substantially interfere with a persons normal, everyday life. Pregnancy and puerperium have a crucial role in the onset and course of the disorder, as they could affect the severity of pre-existing OCD or even trigger OCD onset. 2 Diagnosis and treatment of OCD during and following pregnancy are of utmost importance not only because it generally has a chronic course that might affect quality of life 3 but also because obsessions and compulsions in the perinatal period most often focus on the infant and could have persisting negative consequences for the development of the mother-infant relationship and bonding. ...
Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is a chronic (long-term) mental health condition that is usually associated with obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviour. An individual who sufferers from OCD feels they have no command over certain thoughts or ideas that are highly troubling to them, but which seem to force themselves into consciousness. These thoughts, or obsessions, create unbearable anxiety, which can only be relieved by executing a particular ritual to nullify them. This could be something like repeatedly opening and closing a door, washing hands, or counting. OCD is one of the most common mental health conditions. It is estimated that up to 3 in 100 adults and up to 5 in 100 children and teenagers have OCD. OCD usually starts in early adult life, with men tending to report earlier symptoms than women. However, OCD symptoms can begin at any time, including childhood. ...

0033]There is also a strong association of obsessive compulsive disorder with movement disorders. Obsessive compulsive disorder is associated with Gilles de la Tourette syndrome (Tourette syndrome), as well as with several other basal ganglia diseases including Sydenhams chorea and Huntingtons disease. There is strong evidence of a link between obsessive compulsive disorder and motor tics. While estimates of the occurrence of obsessive compulsive disorder in patients with Tourette syndrome vary from 5% to over 50%, all estimates are significantly higher than the prevalence of obsessive compulsive disorder in the general population. Shared clinical features between obsessive compulsive disorder and Tourette syndrome include waxing and waning of symptoms, early age at onset, ego-dystonic behavior (i.e., behavior contrary to an individuals conscious preferences), worsening with depression and anxiety, and their occurrence in the same families (Robertson and Yakely, supra).

The aims of the present study were to examine the frequency of personality disorders in 36 patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and to investigate whether patients with a coexisting personality disorder could be characterized by certain personality traits assessed by means of the Karolinska Scales of Personality (KSP). In total, 27 (75%) of the OCD patients fulfilled the DSM-III-R criteria for a personality disorder, and 13 patients (36%) had an obsessive-compulsive personality disorder. Subjects with a comorbid personality disorder had significantly higher scores on most of the KSP scales, including all anxiety scales, as well as scales measuring indirect aggression, irritability, guilt and detachment, whereas subjects without personality disorders did not differ significantly from healthy controls with regard to personality traits.. ...
Rapid, illegible handwriting as a symptom of obsessive - compulsive disorder Journal- Indian Journal of Psychological Medicine - Date of acceptance 26/12/2013
Trichotillomania, or hair pulling disorder has previously been classified as an impulse control disorder. However, the most recent edition of the DSM5 now categorizes disorders such as hair pulling disorder and skin picking disorder as body-focussed repetitive behaviours (BFRBs), under the classification Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders.. This new classification suggests that hair pulling disorder falls under the same spectrum, but is different to obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). The question then is whether OCD and trichotillomania co-occur and if so how common it is. One study that examined the comorbidity and family genetics of childhood trichotillomania, found that the subjects had substantial psychopathology and that a history of obsessive compulsive symptoms was common. One of the criteria for diagnosis of trichotillomania is that the hair pulling behaviour impacts negatively on functioning. The social withdrawal and feelings of isolation are often linked to feelings of ...

Common single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) account for a large proportion of the heritability of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Co-ocurrence of OCD and schizophrenia is commoner than expected based on their respective prevalences, complicating the clinical management of patients. This study addresses two main objectives: to identify particular genes associated with OCD by SNP-based and gene-based tests; and to test the existence of a polygenic risk shared with schizophrenia. The primary analysis was an exon-focused genome-wide association study of 370 OCD cases and 443 controls from Spain. A polygenic risk model based on the Psychiatric Genetics Consortium schizophrenia data set (PGC-SCZ2) was tested in our OCD data. A polygenic risk model based on our OCD data was tested on previous data of schizophrenia from our group. The most significant association at the gene-based test was found at DNM3 (P=7.9 × 10(-5)), a gene involved in synaptic vesicle endocytosis. The polygenic risk model ...
The current study aimed to gather psychometric data on two newly designed Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder self-report measures. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder has historically been evaluated with clinician-administered assessments or short form self reports given in the treatment setting. Critics of earlier measures noted the lengthy format could be time consuming in therapy sessions, and that the available measures failed to provide information on the widest possible array of potential obsessions and compulsions. Further, many assessment tools do not evaluate for highly correlated behaviors like compulsive hoarding, which, although not recognized as a symptom of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, is generating much scholarly research and discussion regarding its influence and role in OCD manifestations. The Florida Obsessive Compulsive Inventory and the Schedule of Compulsions, Obsessions, and Pathological Impulses incorporate both shortened ...
BACKGROUND: Symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) have been described in neuropsychiatric syndromes associated with streptococcal infections. It is proposed that antibodies raised against streptococcal proteins cross-react with neuronal proteins (antigens) in the brain, particularly in the basal ganglia, which is a brain region implicated in OCD pathogenesis. AIMS: To test the hypothesis that post-streptococcal autoimmunity, directed against neuronal antigens, may contribute to the pathogenesis of OCD in adults. METHOD: Ninety-six participants with OCD were tested for the presence of anti-streptolysin-O titres (ASOT) and the presence of anti-basal ganglia antibodies (ABGA) in a cross-sectional study. The ABGA were tested for with western blots using three recombinant antigens; aldolase C, enolase and pyruvate kinase. The findings were compared with those in a control group of individuals with depression (n = 33) and schizophrenia (n = 17). RESULTS: Positivity for ABGA was observed in 19/96 (19

Childbirth can trigger a variety of psychiatric disorders; however, no disorder is as profoundly affected by childbirth as bipolar disorder. Rates of psychiatric comorbidity especially anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, and substance use disorders are quite high in individuals with bipolar disorder. The purpose of this scoping review is to ascertain the effect of childbirth on the relationship between the onset of bipolar disorder and comorbid psychiatric disorders. On June 27, 2017, a search of the Medline, PsycINFO, CINHAL, EMBASE, SCOPUS, COCHRANE, and ISI-Web of Science (WOS) databases was performed using the terms mental disorders, mental disease, major depressive disorder, major depression, depression, panic disorder, bipolar disorder, comorbidity, anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia, eating disorders, reactive attachment disorder, childbirth, parturition, puerperium, postpartum, postpartum period and postnatal ...
Until a few years ago, a person who was known to collect cats would have been called the crazy cat person, houses that were filled with stuff were referred to as cluttered, filthy, or a pen sty. Today, those expressions have been replaced with the terms: hoarder or compulsive hoarding. What is hoarding? Hoarding is the inability to resist acquiring and disposing of possessions, (many of which have limited use or no value) to the point that it compromises movement within the home and renders living areas unusable (Tolin, Frost, & Steketee, 2007). In addition to excessive acquiring, many people with compulsive hoarding often have problems keeping these items organized. Hoarders tend to put things on a stack or pile closest to them, this in turn leads to disorganization; which adds another element into why hoarders are reluctant to throw things away. Compulsive hoarding is thought to be associated with obsessive-compulsive disorder and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (Pertusa, A, ...
NEW YORK - Children and adolescents with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety or tic disorders are being treated in a new specialized outpatient clinic at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center - one of the only programs of its kind in the New York metro area.. In addition to a clinic in Manhattan, the Pediatric OCD, Anxiety and Tic Disorders (POCAT) program will offer a unique, day camp-style intensive summer treatment program situated in White Plains, N.Y., at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Westchester Division. The POCAT program is co-led by pediatric psychologist Dr. Shannon M. Bennett and psychiatrist Dr. Justin Mohatt.. Anxiety is a normal part of growing up, but when it interferes with school, friendships or family life, we recommend parents seek treatment for their child. If a family is going to extreme measures to accommodate their childs anxiety, or if their child has a problem with involuntary movements or vocalizations, we can offer help, says Dr. ...
By activating a brain circuit that controls compulsive behavior, MIT neuroscientists have shown that they can block a compulsive behavior in mice -- a result that could help researchers develop new treatments for diseases such as obsessive-compulsive disorder and Tourettes syndrome.
In order to participate, you need to have a Smartphone on which the study application will be loaded. If you do not, cognitive training would have to be provided by the UCT Department of Psychiatry and Mental Health on a loan phone which you will be responsible for. You will undergo a comprehensive screening interview with a clinical psychologist to see whether you qualify for participation. The interview also includes the assessment of OCD symptoms and severity.. The study aims to include 20 OCD patients and 20 healthy controls to compare. Nine participants have been recruited thus far, two have completed the 8-week Cognitive Training and two more are currently on their way to completing the Cognitive Training. Taking part in the study involves the following: a screening session, a neuropsychological testing session, a brain scan session, a 4 week follow-up, a post scan and post neuropsych/exit interview. Thus far the training has gone smoothly and participants seem to engage well with this ...
The rate of Toxoplasma gondii seropositivity in patients diagnosed with pediatric obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is investigated. Toxoplasma avidity levels, antitoxoplasma IgG, and antitoxoplasma IgM are investigated using the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) method to examine the serums of 42 patients diagnosed with OCD (DSM-IV criteria) and 45 healthy individuals in the control group. Anti-toxoplasma IgG seropositivity was found in two patients (4.8%) among the pediatric OCD cases. Anti-toxoplasma IgM seropositivity was not detected in any patient. The toxoplasma avidity levels in patients determined to have anti-toxoplasma IgG seropositivity were 35 +/- 7.07. In the control group, however, antitoxoplasma IgG seropositivity was detected in four (8.9%) children. However, antitoxoplasma IgM seropositivity was not detected in any of the children, and the toxoplasma avidity level was 33 +/- 2.44. No statistically significant difference was found between the OCD group and the control ...
Background: Tourette Syndrome (TS) is a neuropsychiatric disorder in children characterized by motor and verbal tics. Although several genes have been suggested in the etiology of TS, the genetic mechanisms remain poorly understood. Methods: Using cytogenetics and FISH analysis, we identified an apparently balanced t(6,22)(q16.2;p13) in a male patient with TS and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). In order to map the breakpoints and to identify additional submicroscopic rearrangements, we performed whole genome mate-pair sequencing and CGH-array analysis on DNA from the proband. Results: Sequence and CGH array analysis revealed a 400 kb deletion located 1.3 Mb telomeric of the chromosome 6q breakpoint, which has not been reported in controls. The deletion affects three genes (GPR63, NDUFA4 and KLHL32) and overlaps a region previously found deleted in a girl with autistic features and speech delay. The probands mother, also a carrier of the translocation, was diagnosed with OCD and shares the ...

Association of serotonin receptor 2a haplotypes with obsessive-compulsive disorder and its treatment response in Iranian patients: a genetic and pharmacogenetic study Marzie Sina,1 Abolhassan Ahmadiani,1 Sareh Asadi,2 Jamal Shams3 1Neuroscience Research Center, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran; 2NeuroBiology Research Center, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran; 3Behavioral Sciences Research Center, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran Introduction: Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a debilitating psychiatric disorder causing intrusive thoughts or repetitive behaviors. Serotonin reuptake inhibitors are used for OCD treatment, but 40%-60% of patients do not respond to them adequately. In this study, the associations of serotonin receptor 2a polymorphisms rs6311 and rs6313 with OCD, its familial form and fluvoxamine treatment response in Iranian population were investigated. Patients and methods: Association analyses were
Anxiety disorders can take the form of panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, phobias or generalized anxiety disorder. · Panic disorder affects about 2.4 million adult Americans and is twice as common in women. It is characterized by feelings of terror that come on suddenly and repeatedly without warning. It is possible, however, to have one or more panic attacks without developing a full-blown panic disorder. · Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, or OCD, causes anxious or disturbing thoughts such as an exaggerated fear of germs. Some people try to banish these thoughts by performing rituals such as constantly washing their hands. Unfortunately these rituals, or compulsions, provide only temporary relief. OCD affects about 3.3 adult Americans and is evenly divided between men and women. It may run in families. · Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a debilitating condition that can develop after a terrifying event such as child abuse, rape, serious accident or ...

Many people develop unhealthy habits such as nail biting or teeth grinding, especially during periods of high stress. Trichotillomania, however, is the compulsive urge to pull out (and possibly eat) your own hair, including eyelashes and eyebrows. Some people may consciously pull out their hair, while others may not even be aware that they are doing it. Trichotillomania can create serious injuries, such as repetitive motion injury in the arm or hand, or, if the hair is repeatedly swallowed, the formation of hairballs in the stomach, which can be life threatening if left untreated. A similar illness is excoriation disorder, which is the compulsive urge to scratch or pick at the skin ...
Our exploratory analyses show that active rTMS seems to be efficacious for treating OCD. Moreover, LF-rTMS and protocols targeting the orbitofrontal cortex or the supplementary motor area seem to be the most promising. Nevertheless, future RCTs on rTMS for OCD should include larger sample sizes and …

Compulsive behaviors could be an attempt to make obsessions go away. The act is usually a small, restricted behavior, but not pathologically disturbing. Compulsive behaviors are a need to reduce apprehension caused by internal feelings a person wants to abstain from or control.
