La fabrique du TOC moderne : une analyse ethnographique de la cérébralisation de la névrose obsessionnelle dans un laboratoire de neurosciences cliniques

Abstract : Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) has become The evidence-based treatment for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) that grows in the daily practice of ‘big neuroscientists’. An ethnographic restitution of the making of an innovative CBT (defined by the addition of a computerized tool to a standard therapy) that was used to treat patients with OCD gives an observation of this process. These observations were conducted within a team located at the Institute for Brain and Spine Institute and using a methodology of observing participation, nested in a sociology-of-science approach. The production process of an innovative therapy appeared to be shaped by diagnostic categories, evaluation methodologies, statistical rhetoric, as well as technological and ethical constraints that accumulate and are mutually validating, and thus define and restrict the space of possibilities in the production of scientific knowledge.
