Making Sense of Eating Disorders

Elysa Roberts (Chief Investigator), Associate Professor Alison Lane (Co-Chief Investigator), The Butterfly Foundation

University of Newcastle



The purpose of the research is twofold. First, we seek to examine how individuals with a lived experience of an eating disorder process and integrate sensory information. A secondary aim is to understand if levels of anxiety or cognitive flexibility have any influence on the sensory-related findings. Outcomes of this project will contribute to our understanding of an aspect of human behaviour that might help us design targeted therapeutic or self-management strategies for people recovering from eating disorders.

To participate in this study you must be over 18-years-old and be currently experiencing or have previously experienced an eating disorder. To participate you must also live in Australia, New Zealand, the United States of America or the United Kingdom.
