A very encouraging clinical trial for patients with OCD
In 2002, thanks to a chance observation in patients suffering from Parkinson's disease, Inserm researchers found a potential treatment for the most serious forms of obsessive compulsive disorder. Following neurosurgical treatment, two patients had a substantial decrease in their OCD. Today, a clinical trial involving the teams of 10 university hospital centers was coordinated by the Avenir team (2008-11-12)

Procedure to help Parkinson's disease could shed light on psychiatric disorder
French authors of a research letter in this week's issue of The Lancet describe how electrode stimulation of a specific part of the brain to alleviate symptoms of Parkinson's disease could also help in the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorders. (2002-10-24)

Cognitive behavioral therapy helps children with obsessive-compulsive disorder

Oops! Researchers publish new findings on the brain's response to costly mistakes
Whether it's deleting a computer file and then realizing that we can't get it back, or dropping a bag of groceries, we all make mistakes that aren't just annoying, but potentially costly.

Deep brain stimulation for obsessive-compulsive disorder releases dopamine in the brain
Some have characterized dopamine as the elixir of pleasure because so many rewarding stimuli -- food, drugs, sex, exercise -- trigger its release in the brain. However, more than a decade of research indicates that when drug use becomes compulsive, the related dopamine release becomes deficient in the striatum, a brain region that is involved in reward and behavioral control. (2014-04-30)

$10.5 million in funding creates center to study OCD
A new research center exploring the science underlying a potential new treatment for obsessive-compulsive disorder has been established at the University of Rochester Medical Center, thanks to a $10.5 million award from the National Institute of Mental Health. Rochester will serve as the hub of a five-year collaborative effort that includes six institutions around the nation and in Puerto Rico. (2009-10-06)
