About the Course:

A deeper understanding of the neuropsychological functioning of individuals with eating disorders (EDs) is important as it provides direction for the psychological and pharmacological treatment of these disorders.1 In addition, the identification of neuropsychological impairments associated with EDs has the potential to provide an objective means of evaluating symptom severity and prognosis.2 Despite the clear advantages of neuropsychological research in EDs, most of this work has focused on individuals with anorexia nervosa (AN) and bulimia nervosa (BN),2 and little research has investigated individuals who engage in binge eating in the absence of regular compensatory behaviors. This course examines the link between binge eating, executive functioning, and behavioral impulsivity.

This course is based on the reading-based online article, Executive Functioning and Behavioral Impulsivity of Young Women Who Binge Eat: Volume 46, Issue 2 created by Nichole R. Kelly, MS, Cynthia M. Bulik, PhD, and Suzanne E. Mazzeo, PhD
