Call in to speak with the host
Carolyn Rodriguez, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, Columbia University Department of Psychiatry; NIMH Research Fellow, Center for OCD and Related Disorders at Columbia Psychiatry
In this talk, Dr. Rodriguez will emphasize that although the causes of OCD are not fully understood, researchers have important clues for the brain basis of this disorder. Brain regions thought to be affected in OCD use chemical messengers to communicate and hold a key to understanding the brain basis of OCD. Finally, Dr. Rodriguez will describe how glutamate, the main chemical messenger involved in the communication between nerve cells in the brain, plays a role in OCD
