About this Research Topic
There is mounting evidence that the inability to resist calorie-rich and highly appetitive food represents a special case of addiction behavior (Kelley and Berridge 2002; Rolls 2007; Trinko et al. 2007; Volkow et al. 2008). Similar to other drug addicts, poor decision making and impulse control may facilitate overeating, especially when faced with a constant supply of highly palatable food. This Research Topic aimed to gather a group of articles discussing the relationship between eating and decision making, including eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia. We aimed to include articles from different perspectives: behavior, neuroimaging, neuropsychology, psychophysiology, clinical psychology, etc. And we welcome submissions using diverse methods, including but not limited to, behavior analysis, EEG, fMRI, computational modeling, and clinical trials.
