Assessing brainwaves and heart rate in OCD

Study of volunteers who have an OCD diagnosis
A new study is starting to recruit volunteers who have a diagnosis with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

The study is being conducted at Nepean Hospital in Penrith and it aims to assess how the heart and the brain reacts to obsession and compulsion. The study involves having three sensors attached to your body which are linked to a smal monitoring device. The sensors and the device are less than the size of a 50 cent piece, so they generally don't cause any discomfort. If you are interested in participating, please call us on 4734 2585. Ethics approval #LNR/17/NEPEAN/116


You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:

  • Have a diagnosis with obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Have the ability to travel to Nepean Hospital
