This paper systematically reviews the literature pertaining to the use of resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (rsfMRI) in anorexia nervosa (AN), classifying studies on the basis of different analysis approaches. We followed PRISMA guidelines. Fifteen papers were included, investigating a total of 294 participants with current or past AN and 285 controls. The studies used seed-based, whole-brain independent component analysis (ICA), network-of-interest ICA based and graph… Expand
Reduced Resting-State Functional Connectivity in Current and Recovered Restrictive Anorexia Nervosa
TLDR
Investigating the functional connectivity of resting-state networks in homogenous subsamples of individuals with restrictive AN and the relationship this has with core eating disorder psychopathology found decreased temporal coherence within the lateral visual and auditory RSNs in individuals with current AN and those recovered from AN compared to healthy individuals. Expand
Altered cerebellar–insular–parietal–cingular subnetwork in adolescents in the earliest stages of anorexia nervosa: a network–based statistic analysis
TLDR
The findings suggest that RSFC may be specifically affected at the earliest stages of AN, and could sustain abnormal integration of somatosensory and homeostatic signals, which may explain body image disturbances in AN. Expand
Cortical thinning and associated connectivity changes in patients with anorexia nervosa
TLDR
Evidence is provided that structural and functional brain abnormalities in AN are confined to specific regions and networks involved in visuospatial and somatosensory processing, and structural changes of the precuneus are linked to nutritional and functional states in AN. Expand
Altered brain function in anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa: A hierarchical series of task-based fMRI meta-analyses
TLDR
It is recommended that future studies of EDs carefully characterize patients based on nutritional status and that, beyond clinical diagnosis, studies utilize a trait- or cognitive-domain-based approach to define their populations of interest. Expand
Recovery-associated resting-state activity and connectivity alterations in Anorexia nervosa
TLDR
Resting-state fMRI alterations in AN constitute acute and GMV independent presumably starvation-related phenomena without evidence for possible preexisting trait- or remaining 'scar'-effects. Expand
Recovery-associated resting-state activity and connectivity alterations in Anorexia nervosa.
TLDR
The majority of alterations found here normalized over the course of recovery without evidence for possible preexisting trait- or remaining "scar"-effects, and constitute acute and GMV independent presumably starvation-related phenomena. Expand
Neuronal variability of Resting State activity in Eating Disorders: increase and decoupling in Ventral Attention Network and relation with clinical symptoms
TLDR
Neuronal variability was increased in both anorectic and bulimic subjects specifically in the Ventral Attention Network (VAN) compared to healthy controls, suggesting unstable balance between body attention and attention to external world in ED patients. Expand
Abnormal Spontaneous Regional Brain Activity in Young Patients With Anorexia Nervosa.
TLDR
Abnormal local resting state characteristics in AN-related brain-networks as well as reduced structure-function relationships may help to explain previously reported task-related and classical resting state neural alterations in underweight AN. Expand
Reduced resting-state connectivity in areas involved in processing of face-related social cues in female adolescents with atypical anorexia nervosa
TLDR
The findings point toward a role for an altered development of socio-emotional skills in the pathogenesis of atypical AN, and longitudinal studies will be needed to assess whether these connectivity alterations might be a neural marker of the pathology. Expand
Evaluation of spontaneous regional brain activity in weight-recovered anorexia nervosa
TLDR
Abnormal regional homogeneity found in acute AN seems to normalize in recAN, supporting assumptions of a state rather than a trait marker, warranting further longitudinal research. Expand

Increased resting state functional connectivity in the fronto-parietal and default mode network in anorexia nervosa
TLDR
The finding of an increased functional connectivity in the fronto-parietal network adds novel support for the notion of AN as a disorder of excessive cognitive control, whereas the elevated functional connectivity of the anterior insula with the DMN may reflect the high levels of self- and body-focused ruminations when AN patients are at rest. Expand
Altered resting state functional connectivity of anterior cingulate cortex in drug naïve adolescents at the earliest stages of anorexia nervosa
TLDR
The results in AN adolescents may represent an early trait-related biomarker of the disease and could explain the impaired cognitive flexibility in relation to body image and appetite in AN patients. Expand
Resting state functional connectivity in anorexia nervosa
TLDR
Overall, the findings suggest that sensorimotor and visual network connectivity may be related to visuospatial processing in AN, though, further research is required. Expand
Aberrant network integrity of the inferior frontal cortex in women with anorexia nervosa
Neuroimaging studies investigating the neural profile of anorexia nervosa (AN) have revealed a predominant imbalance between the reward and inhibition systems of the brain, which are also hallmarkExpand
Intrinsic Connectivity Networks Within Cerebellum and Beyond in Eating Disorders
TLDR
The data are consistent with the presence of different alterations in the cerebellar network in AN and BN patients that could be related to psychopathologic dimensions of eating disorders. Expand
Anorexia nervosa is linked to reduced brain structure in reward and somatosensory regions: a meta-analysis of VBM studies
TLDR
Global and regional meta-analyses suggest that excessive restrained eating as found in those with anorexia nervosa coincides with structural brain changes analogous to clinical symptoms. Expand
Partially restored resting-state functional connectivity in women recovered from anorexia nervosa.
TLDR
Some abnormal rsFC patterns found in patients recovered from anorexia nervosa normalize after long-term weight restoration, while distorted rsFC in the FPN, a network that has been associated with cognitive control, may constitute a trait marker of the disorder. Expand
Increased resting state functional connectivity in the default mode network in recovered anorexia nervosa
TLDR
The findings support the view that dysfunction in resting state functional connectivity in regions involved in self‐referential processing and cognitive control might be a vulnerability marker for the development of anorexia nervosa. Expand
Structural magnetic resonance imaging in eating disorders: a systematic review of voxel-based morphometry studies.
TLDR
Preliminary data suggest that, compared with healthy controls, people with anorexia nervosa have decreased grey matter in a range of brain regions and that those with bulimia nervosa has increased grey matter volumes in frontal and ventral striatal areas. Expand
Reduced functional connectivity in the thalamo‐insular subnetwork in patients with acute anorexia nervosa
TLDR
Network patterns in patients with acute anorexia nervosa were characterized and decreased connectivity in AN patients in these nodes might reflect changes in the propagation of sensations that alert the organism to urgent homeostatic imbalances and pain‐processes that are known to be severely disturbed in AN.
