The goal of this study is to compare emotional processing in women with anorexia nervosa to the emotional processing in a set of patients with no history of an eating disorder.
We are recruiting women between the ages of 18 and 40 with a current or past diagnosis of anorexia nervosa.
In this study, we ask participants to observe and rate pictures containing emotional content on a computer screen while we measure facial muscle activity using sticky, non-invasive, surface electrodes. One 90-minute visit is required.
Free parking will be provided if needed. No drugs will be administered.
Compensation is $10 per hour.
