In current study, we use static and dynamic amplitude of low-frequency fluctuation / fractional low-frequency fluctuation (ALFF/fALFF) to assess the local brain activity on patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). We found that both static and dynamic ALFF/fALFF can detect certain cerebral region with abnormal activity, however, dynamic ALFF/fALFF can demonstrate additional brain regions that are ignored by static ALFF/fALFF. In addition, we found that there is significant correlation between cerebellum activity and clinical scale, which suggested the crucial role of cerebellum in the pathophysiology of OCD.
