Temptation and restraint: The role of reward and punishment sensitivity in disordered eating.

Why do some people have such a hard time restricting their caloric intake (individuals with obesity) whereas others are so proficient at it that it results in life-threatening complications (patients with anorexia nervosa)? In this project we test the hypotheses that individual differences in sensitivity reward and punishment play a critical role in people’s (in)ability to regulate food-intake.
