Pilot Study of Deep Brain Stimulation for Severe Anorexia Nervosa

Our hypothesis, based on prior research, is that DBS to the nucleus accumbens will have beneficial neural and symptomatic effects in severe Anorexia Nervosa. As a test of this hypothesis, and to evaluate acceptability and ethical issues we aim to initially study up to 10 patients. This study may provide ...

Neural Basis of Meal Related Interoceptive Dysfunction in Anorexia Nervosa

The human brain has constant access to a multitude of complex signals, which it must simplify and organize in order to sustain the integrity of the organism. Many of these signals originate from outside of the body, such as lights, sounds, and smells, and much is known about how humans ...

Phase N/A

The Impact of Oxytocin on the Neurobiology of Anorexia Nervosa

The primary objective of this investigation is to determine the impact of oxytocin (OT), a peptide hormone that influences social affiliation, on socioemotional neural circuitry and eating disorder behavior in anorexia nervosa (AN). Because socioemotional processing deficits appear to play a key role in AN, OT is implicated as a ...

Maudsley Model of Anorexia Nervosa Treatment for Adolescents and Young Adults (MANTR-a)

Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a serious mental illness which leads untreated to aggravation of symptomatology and chronification. Among all mental illnesses, AN has the highest mortality rate, which is about 5.1 per 1000 people per year. High drop-out rates (up to 40%) or small treatment motivation constrains treatment success. Since ...

Online Imaginal Exposure

Eating disorders (EDs) are tenacious mental disorders that are difficult to treat. EDs are often accompanied by anxiety disorders, which exacerbate the problem. Better ED treatments are imperative, and it is likely that targeting comorbid conditions, such as anxiety, will facilitate ED treatments. Imaginal exposure is used in anxiety disorders ...

Phase N/A

Floatation-REST and Anorexia Nervosa

Flotation-REST (reduced environmental stimulation therapy) alters the balance of sensory input by systematically attenuating signals from the visual, auditory, thermal, tactile, vestibular, and proprioceptive systems. Previous research has shown that this heightens interoceptive awareness and reduces anxiety in clinically anxious populations. Anorexia nervosa (AN) is characterized by elevated anxiety, distorted ...

Family Therapy and Anorexia Nervosa : Which is the Best Approach?

While family therapy is considered to have proved itself, its efficacy has been tested with reference to individual therapy by several teams of researchers or in addition to an overall treatment program. Few studies however have compared different types of family studies, and these studies were often on small samples. ...

Anamorelin Hydrochloride in Reducing Anorexia in Participants With Advanced Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

Objectives Primary Objective: To qualitatively examine experiences related to anorexia in advanced lung cancer patients with anorexia-cachexia and the impact of nine weeks of treatment of oral Anamorelin (100 mg) and placebo. The primary outcome is to reach thematic saturation in the Anamorelin and placebo arms. Secondary Objective: To explore ...
