Cat Behavior > Compulsive Behavior in Cats *** The most common compulsive behaviors in cats are wool sucking or fabric eating (a form of pica) and excessive licking, hair chewing or hair pulling (called psychogenic alopecia).***
By activating a brain circuit that controls compulsive behavior, MIT neuroscientists have shown that they can block a compulsive behavior in mice -- a result that could help researchers develop new treatments for diseases such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and Tourettes syndrome.
Researchers used optogenetics to identify the brain circuits responsible for compulsive behaviors in mice. The findings could lead to new approaches for treating obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and other conditions that include compulsive behavior.
