    Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health condition where a person has obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours. OCD can affect men, women and children. Some people start having symptoms early, often around puberty, but it usually starts during early adulthood. Firstly the problem begins with a worrying or obsessional thought, for example “I am not clean” this is often followed by the compulsive behaviour, for example, handwashing, the behaviour brings some temporary relief but being locked in this cycle can cause symptoms to worsen and lead to high levels of self-doubt, depression, anxiety and isolation.

    Given that the cardinal symptoms of OCD involve intrusive and unwanted obsessional thoughts about uniquely human topics (e.g., being responsible for harm or mistakes, religion, morality, fear of contamination) and compulsive rituals are aimed at neutralizing these obsessions, it is difficult to conceive a true animal model of this condition.

Reed (–) was a Canadian is best known for his major work on anomalistic psychology entitled The Psychology of Anomalous Experience (), which seeks to better understand the psychology behind seemingly bizarre experiences. He was also a Alma mater: Manchester University.
