2026: Neurobiological Role of Altered CCK Response in Bulimia Nervosa
This NINR funded clinical research study examined the altered neurobiological responses in bulimia nervosa (BN). Previous research suggested this may be a cause, consequence, or maintenance factor. Findings from this study indicate that during remission from BN responses normalize, in active BN a significant correlation exists between increased responses and urges to vomit, having implications in research, practice and treatment strategies.
