Developmental Considerations in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder: Comparing Pediatric and Adult-Onset Cases

The clinical, familial and translational biomarker correlates seen in early onset OCD that support the notion of a developmental subtype are reviewed and implications for research and treatment aimed at this cohort are discussed.

Decreased left amygdala functional connectivity by cognitive-coping therapy in obsessive-compulsive disorder

It is demonstrated that both pCCT and CCT with large effect sizes lowered LA-FC, indicating that FCs were involved in OCD.

Comparison of resting-state spontaneous brain activity between treatment-naive schizophrenia and obsessive-compulsive disorder

SZ and OCD show some similarities in spontaneous brain activity in parietal and occipital lobes, but exhibit different patterns of spontaneousBrain activity in frontal, temporal, parietal, occipitals, and insula brain regions, which might imply different underlying neurobiological mechanisms.

An overview of the first 5 years of the ENIGMA obsessive–compulsive disorder working group: The power of worldwide collaboration

This work has shed new light on questions about whether structural and functional alterations found in OCD reflect neurodevelopmental changes, effects of the disease process, or medication impacts, and a consideration of future directions for neuroimaging research on OCD within and beyond ENIGMA.

Temporal Stability of Dynamic Default Mode Network Connectivity Negatively Correlates with Suicidality in Major Depressive Disorder

Previous studies have demonstrated that the suicidality in patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) is related to abnormal brain functional connectivity (FC) patterns. However, little is known

Comparison of Resting-State Spontaneous Brain Activity between Treatment-Naive Patients with Schizophrenia and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

This work aims to provide a systematic review and meta-analyses of the determinants of depression in children aged between the ages of four and eight in the People’s Republic of China.

An fMRI study of cognitive planning before and after symptom provocation in pediatric obsessive–compulsive disorder

It is suggested that brain activity and connectivity is altered after symptom provocation, in the absence of impaired planning performance.

Obsessive compulsive disorder in adolescence: an epidemiological study.

In the second part of a two-stage epidemiologic study of obsessive-compulsive symptoms in nonreferred adolescents, clinicians interviewed high school students selected from screening measures

Neural correlates of symptom dimensions in pediatric obsessive-compulsive disorder: a functional magnetic resonance imaging study.

Reduced activity in neural regions underlying emotional processing, cognitive processing, and motor performance in pediatric subjects with OCD compared with the controls is indicated.

Fronto-striato-limbic hyperactivation in obsessive-compulsive disorder during individually tailored symptom provocation.

Symptom-specific frontal activation points towards a sustained endeavor to suppress exaggerated emotional responses to OCD triggers, and augmented amygdala involvement in patients reflects general emotional hyperarousal.

OCD: obsessive–compulsive … disgust? The role of disgust in obsessive–compulsive disorder

How elevated behavioural and biological markers of disgust reported in OCD populations support the need for alternative clinical treatment strategies and theoretical models of OCD are discussed.

Distinct neural correlates of washing, checking, and hoarding symptom dimensions in obsessive-compulsive disorder.

The findings suggest that different obsessive-compulsive symptom dimensions are mediated by relatively distinct components of frontostriatothalamic circuits implicated in cognitive and emotion processing.

The major symptom dimensions of obsessive-compulsive disorder are mediated by partially distinct neural systems.

The reported symptom dimension-specific GM and WM alterations support the hypothesis that OCD is an etiologically heterogeneous disorder, with both overlapping and distinct neural correlates across symptom dimensions.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder patients with washing symptoms show a specific brain network when confronted with aggressive, sexual, and disgusting stimuli

Evidence is furnished that OCD patients with washing symptoms show a different pattern of processing of aggressive and disgusting stimuli at the brain level, and the implicated networks involved suggest that OCD Patients have a more self-referential response than in healthy controls.

Neuroimaging of cognitive brain function in paediatric obsessive compulsive disorder: a review of literature and preliminary meta-analysis

Altered functional activation in the same brain regions of affective and cognitive cortico-striatal-thalamic circuits as for adult OCD patients despite some variations in the direction of activation difference is indicated.
