Brief description Around 15% of Australian women will have an eating disorder at some time in their life, and half of these will experience significant levels of depression and suicidality. The current project seeks to build better models of the initiation and maintenance of eating disorders that can inform development of effective treatments, with identification of genes and environments that predict the various components that define eating disorders (i.e., behaviours, temperaments and cognitive flexibility).
