Biomarkers of Clinical Subtype and Treatment Response in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

What is the purpose of this trial?

This study is meant to explore the neurobiological and psychological underpinnings of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). It consists of several parts, including a phone screen followed by some extensive interviews with staff. Research participation may then be offered in decision making tasks or different magnetic resonance (MR) scans. The volunteers being sought must be English speaking people, ages 18 to 70 years old, able to provide informed consent, in one of the following groups: without OCD (controls), with subclinical OCD symptoms (e.g. Contamination concerns) but no diagnosis, with diagnosable OCD. Economic reimbursement averages $20 per hour. Study participation requires several visits.

Interested individuals should call 203-974-7523 or toll free 1-855-OCD-YALE (1-855-623-9253).
