Future Directions The Padua-R [19] was used to evaluate OCD symptom severity: All patients had total scores of at least 29, contamination subscale scores of at least 14, and a higher score on the contamination subscale than on the checking subscale. Discover a faster, simpler path to publishing in a high-quality journal. Removal of this brake makes the heart's inter-beat interval less modulated and hence more regular, yielding decreased RSA amplitude (measured in ln msec2), which thus indicates a shift from a safe toward a potential-threat autonomic state. It is the effects of those metabolic factors on brain circuits that suppress the re-appearance of hunger motivation for an extended period of time [33], [34], [35], [36]. Behavioral TreatmentsC. A contrasting explanation posits that underlying OCD is a dysfunction of termination—a stopping problem—in which there is failure of the normal process of termination of such security-related thoughts and actions. 0000012496 00000 n This potential-threat state of autonomic function can be monitored by its characteristic effect on heart-rate variability. No, Is the Subject Area "Evoked potentials" applicable to this article? Theory and TreatmentA. Second, examining the effect of the fixed (30-second) wash in the two diaper conditions, this limited-time corrective behavior was significantly less effective in reducing SMS activity for the OCD patients compared to the controls. Further, the deactivating effect of hand-washing in OCD patients with checking compulsions was similar to that for controls, indicating that the dysfunction of termination in OCD is specific to the patient's symptom profile. ALH was supported by a Frederick Banting and Charles Best Canada Graduate Scholarship (CIHR GSD-104525). This emphasis on proprioceptive feedback mechanisms is consistent with the theory of motor control as active inference [70]. Finally, participants washed their hands freely for as long as they wanted. Background In obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), individuals feel compelled to repeatedly perform security-related behaviors, even though these behaviours seem excessive and unwarranted to them. A third possibility is that the stopping deficit in each OCD patient tends to be specific to a particular domain of potential threats. 0000025669 00000 n For more information about PLOS Subject Areas, click CiteScore: 2.2 ℹ CiteScore: 2019: 2.2 CiteScore measures the average citations received per peer-reviewed document published in this title. To provide an analogy, gastric loading with water rather than food can suppress hunger albeit briefly compared to a nutrient meal, and consequently the motivation to eat will emerge more quickly due to the absence of delayed metabolic inhibitory factors. Such failure would explain why, in OCD, security motivation persists abnormally long and drives compulsive and obsessive behaviors. The essential prediction of the model above is that in OCD patients, the security motivation system, once activated, does not fully deactivate with corrective behavior, in that the system becomes sensitized to re-activation by potential threats. %PDF-1.5 %���� Affiliation In these experiments, rather than relying only on subjective report, we employed respiratory sinus arrythmia (RSA) as an objective measure of the activation of security motivation. According to polyvagal theory, there is an intermediate state, occurring when attention is drawn to the environment because of potential threat or novelty, in which parasympathetic influence is reduced, so that the sympathetic system can be triggered quickly if it turns out to be required later. Phenomenologically, this stopping mechanism is associated with an internally generated satiety-like signal that serves as a terminator for the motivation. Thus, manipulation of compulsive behavior patterns and their negative-feedback function may offer new avenues for treatment. Such a supposition follows from the fact that the structure of security motivation is open-ended in that the external environment does not possess signals of goal-attainment—stimuli indicating that there is no potential danger. ComorbidityII. Subjective ratings (e.g., contamination) and behavioral measures (e.g., duration of hand washing) were also collected. 0000010716 00000 n Hence, for subsequent analysis comparing the OCD patients to non-patient controls, we combined all the OCD patients (including the 4 patient participants on mixed medications) into one group. The patients were recruited through the McMaster University Medical Centre (Hamilton Health Sciences) (33 participants) or advertisements in the general community (24 participants). Participants washed their hands at a sink fitted with an automatic, motion-activated faucet that was preset to deliver a consistent flow of warm water (at about 25°C). There are important implications of the present results for research into the biological mechanisms that underlie OCD. The statistical tests for RSA change using baseline RSA as a covariate are identical to the corresponding tests for raw RSA with baseline RSA as a covariate; the advantage of using RSA change is simply to express decreases in RSA as increases in SMS activation. In this view, motor acts are driven by proprioceptive prediction errors, which are theorized to be evaluated at a low level in the motor hierarchy. Find latest news and research updates on Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Introduction Obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) is a disabling psychopathology. I. 0000011455 00000 n While the growth of the treatment literature for OCD has been impressive since Meyer (1966) first employed ERP with two clients with the condition, there are a number of important limitations in our knowledge of treatment. One explanation posits that there is a dysfunction of activation—a starting problem—in which there is pathological intensity of excitation of the system by stimuli suggesting potential danger. An initial 2-min, eyes-closed resting period allowed the collection of the baseline RSA. 0000003269 00000 n In other words, OCD patients can partially compensate for their deficient ‘stop’ mechanism by increasing the amount of corrective behavior, but this compensation does not generate the long-term “satiation” signal. Biological ModelsF. The perspective advanced here provides a different way of explaining to patients the underlying nature of their difficulties, which, by linking OCD to normal psychology, may connect better with their experiences, thus providing a more acceptable rationale for treatment and enhancing persistence with its difficult challenges. Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is one of several mental illnesses categorized by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) as an anxiety disorder. As in Experiment 1, the patients were recruited through the McMaster University Medical Centre, (Hamilton Health Sciences) (5 participants) or advertisements in the general community (8 participants). Specifically, they were told, “You have 30 seconds to wash, so if you are still washing after 30 seconds, I will ask you to stop.” A subsequent 2-min resting period with eyes closed allowed the collection of the third sample of RSA data. At this time, the second 2-min period of RSA data was collected. Cognitive ModelsD. 0000004354 00000 n 0000027006 00000 n Copyright: © 2012 Hinds et al. A second major finding from the present research is that the stopping impairment in OCD appears to be specific to the potential threats involved in the patient's symptoms, helping to explain why the disorder takes the form of relatively distinct symptom clusters. This study was approved by the McMaster University and Hamilton Health Sciences Institutional Review Board. Accordingly, possible brain regions of hypoactivity in OCD are neural sites elaborating proprioceptive feedback from the performance of species-typical security-related motor actions. 0000009033 00000 n As for Experiment 1, the RSA change data were submitted to multivariate analysis of covariance (MANCOVA), with baseline RSA, age, and sex as covariates. Is the Subject Area "Motivation" applicable to this article? Cognitive CharacteristicsC. Another possible explanation is that all OCD patients have a general stopping deficit, but the domain in which they show symptoms is one in which they have high sensitivity to activation by a particular class of threat stimuli. Pharmacological interventions might also be developed for such enhancement. OCD is a highly debilitating and much misunderstood condition - but new research could point the way towards more effective personalized therapy for individuals who have struggled to find treatment. First, although exposure with response prevention (ERP), the prevailing psychotherapeutic treatment for OCD, is quite effective, a sizeable proportion of patients do not comply with or find they cannot tolerate ERP. Although compulsive responses are blocked in ERP treatment, recent research indicates that this is not necessary for treatment success; indeed, the opposite possibility, response intensification, may be as effective [72]. Why do OCD patients tend to have difficulty with only a particular domain of security concerns, but not all? 0000055973 00000 n trailer <]/Prev 228609/XRefStm 2672>> startxref 0 %%EOF 902 0 obj <>stream The paradigm used in this experiment was developed previously in a series of studies with non-patient participants [16]. A major issue in understanding OCD is to explain why it takes the form of distinct symptom clusters or subtypes that are reasonably stable over time, such as “washers” and “checkers” [21], [22], [23]. Next, I discuss the mechanisms of ERP. The mainstay of treatment includes cognitive–behavioural therapy (CBT) and medication management. 0000016270 00000 n According to this account, in OCD, threat concerns would be too readily or too intensely triggered by stimuli [12]. OCD causes the patient’s social life to decrease or otherwise harms it. 0000001896 00000 n For the OCD checkers and the non-patient controls in Experiment 2, the patterns of data closely resemble the patterns shown by the controls in Experiment 1, rather than the OCD washers in that experiment. More recent research has also demonstrated the role of glutamate, dopamine, and possibly other neurochemi-cals. Of several plausible interpretations for this finding, a particularly interesting one is a hypothesis that distinguishes immediate and delayed effects of a stop-signal deficiency in OCD. Yes Journal of Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders (JOCRD) is an international journal that publishes high quality research and clinically-oriented articles dealing with all aspects of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and related conditions (OC spectrum disorders; e.g., trichotillomania, hoarding, body dysmorphic disorder).The journal invites studies of clinical and … In a similar manner, we hypothesize that there are both immediate and delayed components to the stop signal that deactivates security motivation. 0000003622 00000 n No, Is the Subject Area "Hand washing" applicable to this article? RSA and subjective ratings were collected as described for Experiment 1. Three levels of stimuli were designed to differ in the level of implied threat of contamination via germs or disease. The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation has awarded more than $5 million to obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) Research since 1987. OCD research papers: point 2. The present research investigated two alternative ways of explaining such behavior: (1) a dysfunction of activation—a starting problem—in which the level of excitation in response to stimuli suggesting potential danger is abnormally strong; versus (2) a dysfunction of termination—a stopping problem—in which the satiety-like process for shutting down security-related thoughts and actions is abnormally weak. Participants were then instructed to remove their hand from the bin, hold it motionless in their lap (to avoid movement artifacts), and focus attention on it with eyes closed. 0000047676 00000 n Figure 1 depicts the relevant adjusted means. Taken together with the results of Experiment 1, these results from Experiment 2 support the hypothesis that the stopping deficit in OCD is specific to the type of potential threat that is characteristic of the patient's symptoms. 0000008747 00000 n Note: * p<.05 vs. controls at the same time of measurement. This type of cognitive control mechanism is evaluated by tests such as stop-signal inhibition task, go/no-go task, delay-aversion/delay-discounting task, and the 5-choice serial reaction time task, each paradigm tapping different components of the inhibitory control process [54], [56], [62], [63], [64], [65], [66]. Funding: This research was supported by operating grants from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR MOP-74553 and CIHR MOP-64424). A limitation of Experiment 1 is that it considered only one subtype of OCD, namely, washers. The results for actual wash duration and satisfaction clarify the overall picture. Building on the work of Reed [13], [14], we argued that characterizing OCD as a pathology of stopping better captures the behavioral profile of the disorder [3], [4]. Performed the experiments: ALH MVA. 0000104039 00000 n https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0030586.g001.

Yes From this framework, OCD is basically a disorder in the regulation of a normal motivational system [4], [5], [6], [7], [8], [9], [10]. 0000018016 00000 n And just decades ago, research on OCD was virtual read more » These stop feedback pathways are proposed to innervate the limbic striatum and frontal cortex, and arrest the reverberant activity in the orbitofrontal-basal-ganglia circuit via serotonergic neurotransmission [3], [4]. For instance, filling the stomach with food distends the stomach and such stretching of stomach walls provides an immediate, albeit relatively short-acting, mechanical signal to inhibit the continuation of eating. broad scope, and wide readership – a perfect fit for your research every time. 0000011849 00000 n 0000008451 00000 n 0000010529 00000 n In particular, would OCD patients whose predominant symptom is checking also show a stopping deficit in response to the symptom-unrelated threat of contamination? Wrote the paper: ALH EZW MVA LAS HS. A consistent finding in brain imaging studies of OCD has been hyperactivity in the orbitofrontal-basal-ganglia circuit [67], [68], [69], suggesting that the OCD symptoms reflect pathology of over-activation in this network. However, rather than conceptualizing OCD in terms of a general underlying cognitive disability to achieve closure, as Reed did, we posited that OCD results from the breakdown of a specific satiety-like mechanism by which engagement in security-related behavior normally shuts down the security motivation system. After a description of the study to the participants, written informed consent was obtained. Overall, these satisfaction and wash-duration data, together with the RSA and contamination results, lend strong support to our hypothesis that OCD reflects a reduced ability of security-related behavior to terminate motivation evoked by potential danger, rather than a heightened initial sensitivity to potential threat. The relative absence of OCD symptoms was confirmed using the Padua-R: All control participants had total scores of less than 29 and contamination and checking subscale scores of less than 14. To illustrate, the behavioral act of eating brings hunger motivation to an end, but the mechanisms that ultimately arrest further eating and suppress hunger motivation are complex and distinct. For the purpose of this analysis only, 4 OCD patients were excluded because they were taking a combination of both antidepressant medication and clonazepam. Participants were asked to refrain from coffee and other stimulants for at least 2 hours prior to the study. Further support for this hypothesis would be provided by a future experiment that uses a checking paradigm to show that OCD checkers demonstrate a stopping deficit, but OCD washers do not. But years ago, much less was known about it than is known today. and leisure activities. One possible explanation is that OCD patients have a specific starting problem, but no stopping problem at all, as argued by some investigators [12].

Bloch, MD, Vladimir Coric, MD, and Christopher Pittenger, MD, Ph.D.Michael Bloch, MD, is a Fellow in the Solnit Integrated Program 0000006047 00000 n An unanticipated and intriguing finding from Experiment 1 with OCD washers was that after the free wash, when patients had washed as long as desired, the autonomic index of SMS activity (RSA change) indicated a deactivation of security motivation (consistent with their stopping of hand-washing). 0000014715 00000 n IOCDF noted that the feeling is unwanted, overwhelming, and includes intense anxiety which can be very Hence, it is possible that such techniques can also be used to intensify or enhance the internal stop signal. 0000029297 00000 n Participants were 13 patients (4 men) and 15 non-patient controls (5 men). Department of Psychology, Neuroscience and Behaviour, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Hence, we suggest, RSA change indexes the immediate component of the stop signal, while subjective satisfaction tracks the delayed or longer-lasting component of the stop mechanism. The funders had no role in study design, data collection and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the manuscript. 0000058005 00000 n https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0030586.g002. In testing this hypothesis, the objectives of the experiment were: (a) to measure the sensitivity to activation by potential threat; (b) to measure the effectiveness of security-related behavior in terminating activation from potential threat; and (c) to determine whether either or both of those characteristics distinguish OCD patients from non-patient controls. However, security-related behaviors that for most people would readily shut down these primal concerns do not work well in people with OCD. Note that the model predicts enhanced re-activation to potential threat stimuli, but normal activation upon first exposure (indeed, we found no initial hypersensitivity in our experiment with OCD washers). Cues suggesting potential threat activate this Security Motivation System (SMS), which motivates preventative behaviors such as washing and checking, and the performance of these behaviors in turn typically provides negative feedback to terminate the security motivation. Statistical tests were based on Pillai's trace. 0000012608 00000 n Those authors propose that the pathological impairment is in “behavioral inhibition,” a form of fronto-executive control over motor responding. 0000007273 00000 n 0000003490 00000 n He has participated in advisory boards for Astra Zeneca, Biovail, Eli Lilly, Janssen-Ortho Inc., Labo Pharm, Lundbeck, Pfizer Inc., Servier, Shire and Valiant. No, Is the Subject Area "Time measurement" applicable to this article? In individuals with OCD, performance of security-related behavior may fail to shut down activation of the system in the normal way. Further details of the participants are provided in Table 1. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0030586.t001. There were no consumer books written about OCD until the late 1980s. 0000003414 00000 n At the end of each resting period, participants were asked to indicate their subjective level of contamination experienced during the last 2 min by pointing to the appropriate spot on a 15-cm line with the endpoints labeled “not at all contaminated” and “extremely contaminated.” Each response was quantified as the distance in centimeters from the lower endpoint. The rationale for using RSA stems from polyvagal theory [15], which posits a hierarchy of states of parasympathetic-sympathetic functioning. 8. Contributed reagents/materials/analysis tools: LAS. Some studies have found a link between trauma in childhood and OCD. Family and Genetics: Twin and family studies have found that people with direct relatives (parent, sibling, or child) who have OCD are at a higher risk for developing OCD themselves. In the analysis of RSA, there were two statistically significant interactions with Group (OCD patients vs. controls): the three-way interaction of Group, Stimulus, and Time of Measurement, F(4, 210) = 4.48, p<.01, partial eta-squared = .08; and the two-way interaction of Group and Time of Measurement, F(2, 104) = 23.11, p<.001, partial eta-squared = .31. Next, participants engaged in a prescribed 30-second period of hand washing. Preferred options if first-line treatment fails Switch the SRI. In summary, OCD can be characterized either as a problem of starting (hypersensitivity to potential threat stimuli) or as a problem of stopping (dysfunction of a satiety-like, negative feedback mechanism). OCD Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: Research Update Three recently published studies shed light on current and future treatments. For example, a patient for whom washing is relatively ineffective in shutting down activation related to contamination threat may not have difficulty in terminating activation in response to other types of potential threats.

A state dominated by parasympathetic influence facilitates social behavior in circumstances that are safe from danger, whereas a state dominated by sympathetic influence facilitates fight-or-flight behavior in circumstances that present imminent danger.
