Biography:

The Cognitive Neuroscience Lab, led by Dr. Tisha Ornstein and the Psychophysiology Lab led by and Dr. Kristin Vickers, in collaboration with the Frederick W. Thompson Anxiety Disorders Centre at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, are carrying out a study examining cognitive functions and treatment efficacy in individuals with OCD and OCD Spectrum Disorders. The two-phase study will assess participants using an extensive clinical and neurocognitive test battery. The first phase will evaluate individuals with various OCD symptom subtypes and individuals without OCD, and the second phase will compare individuals before and after cognitive-behavioural therapy. The project aims to add to the limited literature available on neurocognitive impairment, treatment and OCD symptom subtypes, and to help provide targeted interventions.
