Conclusions: Our data are in accordance with previous findings outlining that N + insomniacs have higher PSQI scores than N-. Our results do not confirm the suggested association between napping and depressive or obsessive-compulsive symptoms. Conversely, we found a statistically significant difference (p = 0.0014) in EAT scores in N + and N-. Hyperarousal and REM sleep instability in insomniac patients may create an unbalance of the neuroendocrine hypothalamic regulation leading to an appetite alteration.

ConclusionThe current results suggest that aberrant functional interaction between the salience network (SN) and the DMN may represent a common substrate in the pathophysiology of OCD, while impaired functional coupling within the SN is distinct to autogenous-type OCD patients. These findings provide further neurobiological evidence to support the autogenous-reactive classification model and contribute to the understanding of the neurobiological basis for clinical heterogeneity in OCD.

CONCLUSIONS: The research indicates that anxiety plays a significant role in the clinical picture of OCD and may reach a severity similar to that observed in GAD.

Due to its chronicity and high resistance to standard treatment, alternative clinical management based on neuroscientific findings has been sought. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a modern and dynamic approach in the treatment of OCD giving hope to patients who are resistant to current pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy based treatments. This paper presents two cases of patients diagnosed with refractory OCD who received ...
