Welcome again, thanks for visiting, and future plans


Hello all –

a fine day for everyone (it’s near 8 AM here in Holland).

In the near future I will include topics like: the things OCD and substance use disorders (SUDs) have in common, and links between OCD and autism spectrum disorders. Interesting new material on these matters has, um, materialized.

Meanwhile, progress has been made in treatment for refractory OCD (which is a difficult beast,  hardly responsive to cognitive behavioural therapy and current types of medication). Deep brain stimulation (DSB)  looks like an effective means for decreasing symptoms. Also, there is rTMS, transcranial magnetic stimulation (non-invasive), which seems to be a promising technique for combating OCD symptoms.

Best to all, hope to see you soon,

Frank.
