My research is focused on the pathogenesis and treatment of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). Funded projects include a ten-year longitudinal observational study of 400 patients with OCD, a multicenter genetic linkage study of OCD and neurosurgical approaches to treating refractory OCD patients using the gamma knife and deep brain stimulation. We also have a multicenter translational grant that combines electrophysiology, neuroanatomy, and imaging to explore the neurocircuitry of OCD.
