New Findings in the Genomics and Phenomics of OCD

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Our ability to study the whole genome continues to expand, and with it our knowledge that there is a complex genomic risk for OCD and that a number of genes likely play a role in the illness. Furthermore, we are increasingly realizing that genetic studies need to account for the phenotypic heterogeneity of OCD. Certain symptom or phenotypic features may represent traits that are common to all OCD-related disorders, whereas other traits may differentiate these disorders. This workshop will present new findings in the genomic, neuroimaging, and neurocognitive facets of OCD and related disorders.
