Brief Summary:
To support the discovery of new means for revealing the presence of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), facilitating detection through new technology-based metrics, and attempt to automate existing diagnostic procedures allowing for more efficient diagnostic methods that would broaden clinical scope and outreach.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
OCD Other: No Intervention

Detailed Description:

Aim 1: To observe and compare childhood behaviors regarding handwashing in OCD and control populations

Hypothesis 1: Control participants will spend less time washing their hands, will wash them less frequently, and will be less preoccupied with the sink when doing other activities.

Aim 2: To observe and compare childhood behaviors regarding organizing a cluttered area.

Hypothesis 2: OCD participants will be more disturbed by the presence of clutter and more compelled to organize the items than control participants

Aim 3: To observe and compare childhood behaviors regarding turning on/off light switches

Hypothesis 3: OCD children will be more likely to exhibit compulsive repetitive behaviors regarding the light switch than control participants

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Length of Handwashing [ Time Frame: Same Day ]
    Researchers blindly rate the how long (secs) it takes participants to wash their hands.

  2. Behaviors Associated with Handwashing [ Time Frame: Same Day ]
    Researchers blindly rate whether participants exhibit any unique behavior while washing their hands.

  3. Length of Free Arrangement [ Time Frame: Same Day ]
    Researchers blindly rate how long it takes participants to freely organize a box of school supplies.

  4. Frequency of Movements During Free Arrangement [ Time Frame: Same Day ]
    Researchers blindly rate how many times participants move an object while freely arranging a box of school supplies.

  5. Amount of Space Used During Free Arrangement [ Time Frame: Same Day ]
    Researchers blindly rate how much space participants use while freely arranging a box of school supplies (small, medium, or large space).

  6. Length of Carpet Arrangement [ Time Frame: Same Day ]
    Researchers blindly rate and compare how long (secs) it takes participants to arrange a box of school supplies on a plain versus patterned carpet.

  7. Frequency of Movements During Carpet Arrangement [ Time Frame: Same Day ]
    Researchers blindly rate and compare how many times participants move an object while arranging a box of school supplies on a plain versus patterned carpet.

  8. Frequency of Adjustments During Carpet Arrangement [ Time Frame: Same Day ]
    Researchers blindly rate and compare how many times participants adjust the positioning of an object while arranging a box of school supplies on a plain versus patterned carpet.

  9. Size of Arrangement According to Sample [ Time Frame: Same Day ]
    Researchers blindly rate and compare how accurately participants replicate the size of the arrangement according to a sample picture (smaller than sample, approximate to sample, larger than sample) on a plain versus patterned carpet.

  10. Frequency of Checking the Sample [ Time Frame: Same Day ]
    Researchers blindly rate and compare how many times participants check the sample picture of the arrangement while organizing a box of school supplies on a plain versus patterned carpet.
