How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
I am currently in a postdoctoral position, working on a neuropsychological project, investigating executive functions in individuals with restrictive AN. I am also very interested in cognitive neuroscience in AN, and I strongly believe that understanding the underlying neural mechanisms of the illness is the way to go to develop new treatment methods.

Background Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a severe eating disorder, recognized by a relentless pursuit for thinness and extreme low body weight. The disorder is often accompanied by comorbid disorders such as anxiety and depression, and altered neuropsychological function in terms of poor set-shifting and reduced central coherence. The aim of this review...
Background: The aim of this study was to review the existing literature and evaluate whether deficits in set-shifting, central coherence and decision-making persist in individuals recovered from anorexia nervosa (AN-REC). Method: A systematic review approach was used. Literature was identified via searches in PubMed, PsychInfo and Embase databas...
Background Neuroimaging allows for the identification of brain abnormalities and alterations that are associated with anorexia nervosa (AN). We performed a scoping review to map out the extent and nature of recent research activity on functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in individuals diagnosed with, or recovered from, AN (AN-REC). Main t...
Background Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a severe mental illness, with an unknown etiology. Magnetic resonance imaging studies show reduced brain volumes and cortical thickness in patients compared to healthy controls. However, findings are inconsistent, especially concerning the anatomical location and extent of the differences. The purpose of this stu...
Structural brain changes associated with starvation and clinical measurements were explored in four females with anorexia nervosa with different clinical course, at baseline and 1-year follow-up, after receiving intensive inpatient treatment at a specialized eating disorder unit. Global volume alterations were associated with weight changes. Region...
Anorexia nervosa is a serious illness with major physical and psychological morbidity. It has largely been understood in terms of cultural and environmental explanations. However these are insufficient to explain the diverse clinical features of the illness, nor its rarity given the universality of sociocultural factors. Over the last 20 years, the...
