Abstract

The patho-physiology of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) ischaracterized by a wide range of abnormalities involving seminal domains of cognition such as executive functions and memory. We present here a summary of the most relevant aspects of the cognitive impairment in OCDpatients, in the light of the existing literature. In addressing this issue we will hint about potentially confounding factors such as the presence of co-morbidity with others disorders.
