Computerized Intervention for Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating Disorder

26 January 2018

I’m interested in exploring new ways of targeting the experience of loss of control over eating, and looking at potential mechanisms that might be involved in maintaining disordered eating. My research will thus involve testing a new computer-based intervention, which we hope will help tackle these experiences, as well as measuring brain mechanisms using the non-invasive EEG technique.

Requirements

  • 1) A diagnosis of bulimia nervosa or binge eating disorder, or someone who has reason to believe they may meet criteria but has never been formally assessed
  • 2) No severe psychiatric disorder (eg. psychosis)
  • 3) Fluency in English
  • 4) No visual impairment that cannot be repaired with eyewear or contact lenses
  • 5) No cognitive/neurological impairment
  • 6) No drug or alcohol abuse
  • 7) No metabolic disorder 8
  • 8) Between 18 and 60 years old
  • 9) BMI > 18.5
