PT619. A Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial of N-Acetyl Cysteine in the Treatment of Excoriation Disorder

2016 International Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology  
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a psychiatric condition characterised by intrusive thoughts and repetitive acts. Numerous studies have focused on adult patients, while adolescent OCD is rarely investigated. The few neuropsychological studies on adolescent OCD show inconsistent results 1 , possibly due to small sample sizes and comorbidities of the subjects. The aim of this study was to investigate memory, discrimination learning, set-shifting, and goal-directed control in adolescent OCD.
