  1. Low Emotion Differentiation: An Affective Correlate of Binge Eating?
      Low PED is associated with clinically significant binge eating, and some aspects of NED may also be relevant for binge eating-related phenotypes. Further research examining the constructs captured by different emotion differentiation measures and their relevance to binge eating is needed.
  2. Ovarian Hormones and Reward Processes in Palatable Food Intake and Binge Eating
      Ovarian hormones are associated with risk for binge eating in women. Recent animal and human studies suggest that food-related reward processing may be one set of neurobiological factors that contribute to these relationships, but additional studies are needed to confirm and extend findings.
  3. The Role of Puberty and Ovarian Hormones in the Genetic Diathesis of Eating Disorders in Females
      Puberty is a critical risk period for eating disorders (EDs). ED incidence increases across the pubertal period and becomes female predominant, and genetic influences on disordered eating significantly increase. Surges of ovarian hormones, particularly estrogen, may drive this increasing genetic eff …
  4. Emotion Regulation Strategy Use and Eating Disorder Symptoms in Daily Life
      These findings suggest that certain eating disorder symptoms are associated with difficulties in regulating emotions at the trait-level and in daily life.
  5. Gonadal Hormone Contributions to Individual Differences in Eating Disorder Risk
      Evidence suggests that gonadal hormones play a critical role in the etiology of disordered eating. Overall, higher testosterone and estrogen appear to be protective across development. Additional research is needed to identify mechanisms underlying these effects and further explore interactions betw …
