Floatation-REST and Anorexia Nervosa

Flotation-REST (reduced environmental stimulation therapy) alters the balance of sensory input by systematically attenuating signals from the visual, auditory, thermal, tactile, vestibular, and proprioceptive systems. Previous research has shown that this heightens interoceptive awareness and reduces anxiety in clinically anxious populations. Anorexia nervosa (AN) is characterized by elevated anxiety, distorted ...

Phase N/A

High-frequency vs. Low-frequency vs. Sham DMPFC-rTMS for Bulimia and Anorexia Nervosa

This trial will compare the efficacy and tolerability of 10 Hz vs. 1 Hz vs. sham repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation targeting the dorsomedial prefrontal cortex, delivered once daily over 30 days, in patients with a diagnosis of bulimia or anorexia nervosa binge-purge subtype. The trial will include structural and functional ...

Reward Systems and Food Avoidance in Eating Disorders

Anorexia nervosa (AN), a characteristically relentless pursuit of thinness with an intense fear of weight gain despite significantly low body weight, is a serious psychiatric disorder with high rates of morbidity and mortality. Low weight eating disorders (LW-ED), the broader category of eating pathology that includes AN and similar variants, ...

Phase N/A

Correlation Study Between Heart Rate Variability and Anxiety in Anorexia Nervosa

The heart rate variability (HRV) is a measure of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). In the model of anorexia nervosa, ANS is disturbed with mostly a predominance of activation of the parasympathetic nervous system and a decrease of the sympathetic system. Various explanations of this these dysfunctions are proposed in ...

Phase N/A

The Impact of Oxytocin on the Neurobiology of Anorexia Nervosa

The primary objective of this investigation is to determine the impact of oxytocin (OT), a peptide hormone that influences social affiliation, on socioemotional neural circuitry and eating disorder behavior in anorexia nervosa (AN). Because socioemotional processing deficits appear to play a key role in AN, OT is implicated as a ...

Phase N/A

Online Imaginal Exposure

Eating disorders (EDs) are tenacious mental disorders that are difficult to treat. EDs are often accompanied by anxiety disorders, which exacerbate the problem. Better ED treatments are imperative, and it is likely that targeting comorbid conditions, such as anxiety, will facilitate ED treatments. Imaginal exposure is used in anxiety disorders ...

Family Therapy and Anorexia Nervosa : Which is the Best Approach?

While family therapy is considered to have proved itself, its efficacy has been tested with reference to individual therapy by several teams of researchers or in addition to an overall treatment program. Few studies however have compared different types of family studies, and these studies were often on small samples. ...
