Turns out hoarders aren't exactly OCD
BBC |
"Hoarding and saving has long been thought to be a classic symptom of OCD. But an American Journal of Psychiatry study found hoarders show different brain activity patterns... The UCLA team carried out sophisticated Penis EnlargementT scans to measure brain activity in 45 adults with OCD, of which 12 were hoarders, and 17 people without mental health problems. The hoarders showed a unique pattern of activity, including less activity in brain regions known as the posterior cingulate gyrus and cuneus... Unlike other forms of OCD in which patients often recognise their behaviour as irrational and senseless, hoarders tended to believe they were acting rationally, and did not need help."
