Given that OCD symptoms involve stereotypical behaviour, an immediate possibility is that OCD involves dysfunction of procedural strategies. It is likely that cortical-striatal-thalamic-cortical systems (CSTC) play a crucial role in the implicit learning of procedural strategies, and their subsequent automatic execution. There are several parallel CSTC circuits, each of which governs a somewhat different spectrum of cognitive and affective function (Alexander et al, 1986). Ventral CSTC circuits appear to play a particularly important role in recognizing behaviourally significant stimuli (and in error detection) and in regulating autonomic and goaldirected responses (including response inhibition and suppression of negative emotion), and are therefore a good candidate for involvement in OCD (Davidson et al, 2001; Rauch and Baxter, 1998; Zald and Kim, 1996).

Structural findings have focused on decreased hippocampus volume (Rauch et al, 1998). Although not all studies have been consistent (Bonne et al, 2001), in some work decreased hippocampus volume has correlated with trauma exposure or with cognitive impairment.
