Socio-emotional function and comorbidities in anorexia nervosa

This project aims to understand the way in which people with anorexia nervosa (current or past diagnosis) process emotional and social information.

The testing session will involve a variety of computer-based tasks, some of which use eye-tracking - this is a non-intrusive procedure and just involves looking at images and videos on a computer screen. You will also be asked to complete a number of self-report questionnaires, and the researcher will conduct a clinical interview with you. Your height and weight will also be taken (however you will have the option to be blind weighed).

Testing takes place at King's College London, Denmark Hill, London.
