Obsessive compulsive disorder is a chronic and disabling psychiatric disorder characterised by recurrent intrusive thoughts our images (obsessions) and repetitive behaviours (compulsions). These thoughts and behaviours are severe and time-consuming and have a major impact on patients’ social life, family relationships and capacity to function at work. Clinical observations have shown that deep brain stimulation can induce rapid symptom changes in patients with OCD. Pelle de Koning investigates various potential neurobiological working mechanisms underlying this effect.
