About the Course:

This article highlights an area of critical need for further research on cognitive flexibility in eating disorders. The authors contend that separating two discrete facets of cognitive flexibility, specifically attentional set-shifting and reversal learning, will help clarify the mechanisms that underlie the role of cognitive flexibility in eating disorders. The article describes the importance of incorporating measures of attentional set shifting and reversal learning in research on eating disorders expression, course, and treatment.

Wildes, PhD, Erika E. Forbes, PhD, and Marsha D. Marcus, PhD
