OCD and Paul's new brain model

What about this new model of the brain. Why do people who have OCD's exhibit their unwanted behaviors? Is it possible that it's just an output by itself? I've heard that it's a chemical in the brain that causes unwanted actions, but I think it's influenced by environmental factors too... aren't these inputs? When upset or stressed the behaviors are more pronounced- are these part of who we are? Are these just another part of our brain?

I guess you could say that since our brain is the origin of all of our  thoughts and all of our actions are only possible after signals are   originated in the brain, that WE ARE OUR BRAIN.
