Abstract

Background and objective: Compulsive checkers frequently report that memory impairments contribute to their symptoms. This paper reviews recent studies on verbal, visual and action memory performance of patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder and evaluates them in terms of their relevance to the understanding of compulsive checking. Method: A literature review with detailed analysis and critical discussionof these studies is presented. Results: In general, verbal memory is unimpaired, whereas visual memory deficits are found relatively consistently. Results on action memory (free recall, recognition, reality monitoring, memory confidence) are inconclusive. Conclusions: The importance of ecological validity by constructing experimental tasks so that they are "close to the phenomenon" and theoretical approaches towards a better understanding of OCD patients' memory dissatisfaction is emphasized.
