About
IFPN Founding
What is IFPN?
IFPN is the creation of Dr. William A. Hewlett. Dr. Hewlett has been researching neurobiology for over 20 years at universities such as Vanderbilt and Stanford. Dr. Hewlett's desire to continue and expand his research ideas is the reason IFPN was created. Dr. Hewlett's organization will continue to expand the understanding of several neurobiological areas such as but not limited to: CNS mechanisms associated with the symptomatology, etiology, and effective treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

What is OCD?
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder and is characterized by recurrent, unwanted thoughts (obsessions) and/or repetitive behaviors (compulsions). Repetitive behaviors such as handwashing, counting, checking, or cleaning are often performed with the hope of preventing obsessive thoughts or making them go away. Performing these so-called "rituals," however, provides only temporary relief, and not performing them markedly increases anxiety. Effective treatments for obsessive-compulsive disorder are available, and research is yielding new, improved therapies that can help most people with OCD and other anxiety disorders lead productive, fulfilling lives.
