Due to the coronavirus concerns this event has been cancelled. We hope you will join us for our annual conference in the fall. Please contact us if you have any questions.

The world of psychiatry has defined the nomenclature of mental illness by putting together collections of symptoms. Though this can be informative, as we look to more accurately describe eating disorders and other mental illnesses, we need to unlock a better way of describing these complex, neurobiological illnesses. Thomas Insel, MD from the National Institute of Mental Health has challenged the research community to better describe neurobiological circuits that lead to mental illness. The aim of this challenge is to develop informative “biosignatures” to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illnesses. During the presentation we will take a look at the known neurobiology of eating disorders and postulate how future directions in neuroscience might lead to better diagnosis and treatment of eating disorders.

  3. Understand how specific the neurobiology of “traits” and “states” define current understanding of eating disorders.
