People with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) constantly have intrusive thoughts that produce uneasiness, apprehension, fear or worry, in turn requiring them to take concomitant action such as excessive washing or cleaning. In his PhD thesis, Martijn Figee examines why deep brain simulation (DBS) – a surgical treatment involving the implantation of a medical device which sends electrical impulses to parts of the brain – is an effective remedy for OCD.
