Hoarding a brain disorder
TRNS – Researchers claim that brain hubs become overactive when patients with hoarding disorder must face decisions to discard their own possessions. But the same hubs become underactive when making decisions about others’ possessions.
Brain scans reveal abnormal activity in brain regions that process error monitoring, weighing the value of things, assessing risks, unpleasant feelings, and emotional decisions. Hoarding disorder research is being conducted by the National Institute of Mental Health.
