Abstract

The behavioral repertoires of patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) often appear puzzling and irrational. For example, an OCD patient who just locked a door might repeatedly return and check that it is locked. Similarly, a patient might continue washing and rewashing his hands, waiting for a vague “just-right” feeling before deciding to stop.
