Project description

In this project I will investigate whether a combination of (interacting) information-processing factors leads to a better prediction of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) symptoms than any processing bias alone. Furthermore, I will examine whether valence-specific information-processing biases will have a larger influence on OCD symptoms than general biases. Finally, I will consider contextual information-processing biases and its relationship with stable impairments.
