Eating Disorder Research And Resources
Psychiatric disorders may have important molecular similarities that are not reflected in current diagnostic categories
Conclusion: Considering eating disorders as medical illnesses with pathophysiologies that can be elucidated with the modern tools of genomics and neuroscience offers the best hope for finding cures or preventive strategies.
