Recent functional neuroimaging and neuropsychological studies have suggested that abnormal activity in the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) might cause an action-monitoring dysfunction in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). To identify the relationship between brain dysfunction and cognitive dysfunction, we examined regional brain changes in OCD with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) during the performance of a cognitive task. Participants comprised 24 patients with OCD and 14 normal… CONTINUE READING
