Several studies have demonstrated changes in the attentional processing of food stimuli among individuals with anorexia nervosa (AN) and among individuals with bulimia nervosa (BN).
Maintaining processes for AN and BN among female adolescents will be investigated by experimental methods in this study. We use the methods of electroencephalography (EEG) and eye tracking to measure how girls with AN and BN, as well as girls without any eating disorder, process food stimuli and how this processing can be modified. The EEG and the eye tracking measures are noninvasive and painless.
Girls aged 12 to 18 years with AN or BN or without any eating disorder are needed for participation in this study.
