This study examined recall and recognition memory in 20 nonmediated patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and 20 matched control subjects. As hypothesized, OCD subjects showed abnormalities affecting delayed recall of nonverbal information but showed normal recognition. These results are interpreted as providing preliminary evidence of a nonverbal memory retrieval deficit consistent with proposed corticostriatal system dysfunction in OCD.
