FLARe AN: Fear Learning in Anorexia Nervosa (Healthy controls needed too!)

31 January 2019

FLARe in AN aims to examine the process of fear conditioning in individuals with Anorexia Nervosa, and those now recovered from the disorder. This study aims to examine how easily people become fearful or worried about things they encounter in daily life, and how long this anxiety lasts for.
