Perseveration is a thought disorder

There are a number of relevent meanings related to the tendency for thoughts, feelings or behavior to persist in a way which is unhelpful:

  • Uncontrollable repetition of a particular response, such as a word, phrase, or gesture, despite the absence or cessation of a stimulus, usually caused by brain injury or other neurological disorder.
  • The tendency for a memory or idea to be maintained without any obvious stimulus for it. This implies internal mechanisms for the persistence of the phenomena (eg defence mechanism) and usually carries a negative connotation.

Several researchers have tried to connect perseveration with a lack of inhibition; however, this connection could not be found, or was small.[1][2]
