Background Substantial empirical evidence has indicated impairment in the cognitive functioning of patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) despite inconsistencies. Although several confounding factors have been investigated to explain the conflicting results, the findings remain mixed. This study aimed to investigate cognitive dysfunction in patients with OCD using a meta-analytic approach. Method The PubMed database was searched between 1980 and October 2012, and reference lists of… Expand

Research Review: Neuropsychological test performance in pediatric obsessive-compulsive disorder--a meta-analysis.
TLDR
A meta-analysis of the available literature on pediatric obsessive-compulsive disorder indicates that youth with OCD do not exhibit noteworthy neuropsychological deficits, in line with recent suggestions that OCD may not be characterized by clinically meaningful neuro psychological impairments. Expand
Cognitive confidence in obsessive-compulsive disorder: A systematic review and meta-analysis
Abstract A lack of cognitive confidence, defined as a distrust of one's attention, perception and memory, may be implicated in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and could account for its coreExpand
Neuropsychological differences between obsessive-compulsive washers and checkers: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
A meta-analysis of 13 studies comprising tests in 10 different neuropsychological domains found washers showed significant better task performance than checkers in 8 of 10 cognitive domains, providing further evidence for the validity of different symptom dimensions in OCD. Expand
Meta-Analysis Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Is Associated With Broad Impairments in Executive Function : A
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a serious and often chronically disabling condition. The current dominant model of OCD focuses on abnormalities in prefrontal-striatal circuits that supportExpand
The impact of symptom severity on cognitive function in obsessive-compulsive disorder: A meta-analysis.
TLDR
Small effects were found for the association between cognitive function and symptom severity on major neuropsychological domains, and some subdomains exhibited medium effects for this association, but results should be interpreted cautiously given the limitations identified. Expand
Neurocognitive function in paediatric obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • D. Geller, A. Abramovitch, +5 authors S. Stewart
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • The world journal of biological psychiatry : the official journal of the World Federation of Societies of Biological Psychiatry
  • 2018
TLDR
While the OCD group performed in the normative range, these findings reveal relative weaknesses that may be overlooked, and may be of particular importance in clinical and school settings. Expand
Neuropsychological performance in obsessive-compulsive disorder: A comparison with bipolar disorder and healthy controls
Abstract This study examined whether patients with obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) have deficits in executive functioning and memory, as well as the specificity of any OCD-relatedExpand
Executive Functioning in Chinese Patients With Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
TLDR
The results do not seem to support the view that impaired executive functioning represents a basic cognitive and pathophysiological feature of Chinese patients with OCD, and additional research is required before this conclusion can be well accepted. Expand
Executive impairments in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder: A systematic review with emotional and non-emotional paradigms.
TLDR
There is some initial evidence for the existence of executive impairments in OCD, as expressed in the performance and/or processing of working memory inhibitory control and cognitive flexibility and initial evidence that these latter two could be modulated by the presentation or mental representation of negative valence stimuli or images, as well as the presence of aversive contingencies. Expand
Neuropsychological performance in youth with obsessive-compulsive disorder.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that youth with OCD may have impaired 'set-shifting' in the form of 'behavioral reversal' and possibly planning, findings broadly consistent with the literature in adults and with the fronto-striatal model of OCD. Expand

Memory and executive functioning in obsessive-compulsive disorder: a selective review.
TLDR
It is suggested that decision making as a cognitive construct as related to OCD is a potential area of dysfunction and one that warrants further investigation as it may assist in enhancing the understanding of the pathophysiology of OCD. Expand
Neuropsychological function in obsessive-compulsive disorder.
TLDR
Overall, widespread statistically significant differences were found in tests related to verbal memory, global attention and psychomotor speed, and visuospatial and executive functions indicating a poorer performance of the OCD group. Expand
Neuropsychological performance in obsessive-compulsive disorder: a critical review
TLDR
The results of the study suggest that some cognitive deficits seem to be common in OCD, but future studies should focus more on possible confounding variables such as co-morbidity or psychotropic medication. Expand
Are there reliable neuropsychological deficits in obsessive-compulsive disorder?
TLDR
It is found that subjects with obsessive-compulsive disorder have deficits on certain tasks of executive functioning, non-verbal memory, and/or motor speed, and that these deficits contribute to functional impairment and could be the target of a novel treatment intervention. Expand
Differences in Neuropsychological Performance Between Subtypes of Obsessive–Compulsive Disorder
TLDR
Overall the results suggested greater impairments in performance on neuropsychological tasks in checkers relative to other subtypes of OCD, although the observed effects were small and the conclusions limited by the small subtype samples. Expand
Neurocognitive dysfunction in patients with obsessive compulsive disorder.
TLDR
The results suggest that OCD patients perform significantly worse on cognitive measures than controls, consistent with their poorer functional outcome, and indicate that on the basis of severity OCD patients are qualitatively distinguishable in neuropsychological terms, given their difference in the profiles of cognitive impairment. Expand
Attention and cognition in patients with obsessive–compulsive disorder
TLDR
The results show that patients with OCD have cognitive deficits, and the authors hypothesize that these deficits may be interpreted by attentional deficits caused by a dysfunctional anterior cingulate cortex. Expand
Duration effect of obsessive–compulsive disorder on cognitive function: a functional MRI study
TLDR
The results suggested that abnormal brain activation occurs in the early phase of OCD and that the long‐term persistence of OCD might involve a decline in cognitive function. Expand
Cognitive Frontal Lobe Dysfunction in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
TLDR
Cognitive frontal lobe performance in obsessive-compulsive disorder is focused on and a link between this neuropsychologic profile and dysfunctioning within the anterior cingulate, but not the dorsolateral prefrontal circuit is discussed. Expand
Neuropsychological function in obsessive-compulsive disorder: effects of comorbid conditions on task performance
TLDR
Findings are consistent with the contention that dysfunction of an orbitofrontal-limbic network underlies OCD. Expand
