This is in the context of our auto-addiction model of anorexia nervosa in which endogenous opioids play a critical role in its etiology. Morphine activation of the(More)

Analysis of the residual variance (predicted minus observed rehospitalization) indicated that clinicians' prognostic judgments were biased in regard to patients'(More)
