Anorexia nervosa: valued and visible. A cognitive-interpersonal maintenance model and its implications for research and practice.
A maintenance model of restricting anorexia nervosa, combining intra- and interpersonal factors is proposed, and it does not emphasize the role of weight and shape-related factors in the maintenance of AN; that is, it is culture-free.
Medial prefrontal cortex activity associated with symptom provocation in eating disorders.
A medial prefrontal response to symptom-provoking stimuli was identified as a common feature of anorexia and bulimia nervosa and supports a conceptualization of eating disorders as being transdiagnostic at the neural level.
Time trends in eating disorder incidence
This study provides further evidence for the stability of anorexia nervosa incidence rates and concludes that decreased symptom recognition and changes in service use might have contributed to observed changes in the incidence of bulimia nervosa.
Emotional functioning in eating disorders: attentional bias, emotion recognition and emotion regulation
Depression and attentional bias to faces significantly predicted emotion regulation difficulties in a regression model and provide support for conceptualizations of EDs that emphasize the role of emotional functioning in the development and maintenance ofEDs.
A systematic review and meta-analysis of set-shifting ability in eating disorders
Problems in set shifting as measured by a variety of neuropsychological tasks are present in people with eating disorders.
Is impaired set-shifting an endophenotype of anorexia nervosa?
Sisters with and without anorexia nervosa took significantly longer than unrelated healthy women to shift their cognitive set and demonstrated greater perceptual rigidity but did not differ significantly from each other, suggesting set-shifting difficulties are trait characteristics and may inform the search for the endophenotype in anorexic women.
The experience of caregiving for severe mental illness: a comparison between anorexia nervosa and psychosis
Carers of people with anorexia nervosa are challenged by the difficulties their role produces and they experienced higher levels of difficulties in most areas of caregiving.
