OCD & the Brain launched!

After several years of work, and thanks to Wellcome funding, we have now launched the OCD & the brain website. This Resource was developed together with OCD charities, OCD stakeholders, and people with lived experience. It should be a hub to translate what brain research can contribute to the understanding of OCD. Please have a look at the website and find more information about the process here.

OCD & the brain – a new resource for people with OCD!

We are very excited to announce a project that the lab has worked on for a few years: together with the charities IOCDF and OCD Action, people with lived experience and OCD stakeholders, we have asked the questions “what can brain reseach add to the understanding of OCD?”. What came out is a new website that explains the brain’s role in OCD in an accessible and didactic way. Interested? Join us for the launch event on the 27th January! You can find all info here:
