    Which of the following is wrong about the relationship between tics and OCD?

    • A.

      OCD amplifies Tics

    • B.

      Tics may not be secondary to OCD

    • C.

      Tics are less complex than OCD

    • D.

      They are closely related in treatment

    Correct Answer
    A. OCD amplifies Tics
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that OCD amplifies tics. This means that individuals with OCD are more likely to have tics or experience an increase in the severity of their tics. This suggests that OCD and tics have a relationship where OCD can worsen or enhance tics. It does not mean that tics are the cause or primary symptom of OCD, but rather that OCD can exacerbate tics in individuals who already have them. Additionally, the answer implies that there is a connection between OCD and tics in terms of treatment, suggesting that similar interventions or therapies may be effective for both conditions.

    • A.

      Prayer

    • B.

      Skin picking

    • C.

      Learning new skill

    • D.

      Bedtime routine

    Correct Answer
    B. Skin picking
    Explanation
    The question asks for examples of OCD, or obsessive-compulsive disorder. OCD is characterized by intrusive thoughts and repetitive behaviors. Prayer, learning new skills, and bedtime routines can all be examples of OCD because they can become obsessions or compulsions that individuals feel compelled to engage in repeatedly. However, skin picking is not typically associated with OCD. While it can be a symptom of other disorders, such as dermatillomania, it is not a defining characteristic of OCD.

    Correct Answer
    A. In severe cases, the sufferer is unsure of his condition
    Explanation
    In severe cases of overvalued ideas, the sufferer is unsure of his condition. This means that individuals with overvalued ideas may have a distorted perception of reality and may struggle to recognize the irrationality of their thoughts or beliefs. This uncertainty can make it challenging for them to seek appropriate help or engage in effective therapy, such as ERP (Exposure and Response Prevention) therapy, which is often recommended for treating obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and related conditions.

    The part of the brain most concerned during OCD is the ________

    • A.

      Medulla oblongata

    • B.

      Brainstem

    • C.

      Brain cortex

    • D.

      Hypothalamus

    Correct Answer
    C. Brain cortex
    Explanation
    The brain cortex is the correct answer because it is responsible for higher cognitive functions, including decision-making, memory, and attention. In individuals with OCD, there is an imbalance in the brain cortex, leading to repetitive thoughts and behaviors. The medulla oblongata and brainstem are primarily involved in regulating basic bodily functions, while the hypothalamus plays a role in controlling hormone release and certain behaviors, but they are not directly related to OCD.

    What neurotransmitter affected did OCD has on the body?

    • A.

      Acetylcholine

    • B.

      Epinephrine

    • C.

      Serotonin

    • D.

      Dopamine

    Correct Answer
    C. Serotonin
    Explanation
    Serotonin is the correct answer because it is a neurotransmitter that plays a crucial role in regulating mood, anxiety, and behavior. OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder) is a mental health condition characterized by obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors. Research suggests that imbalances in serotonin levels may contribute to the development and symptoms of OCD. Serotonin helps to transmit messages between nerve cells and regulate various bodily functions, including mood and emotions. Therefore, a disruption in serotonin levels can lead to the manifestation of OCD symptoms.
