New paper on habit learning in Anorexia Nervosa

Sanne and collaborators published new research examining the role of habit learning in individuals with Anorexia Nervosa. The findings from the paper suggest that individuals with AN do not show a general deficit in the balance between goal-directed and habitual control, which was investigated in two studies using a computerized outcome-devaluation task. The authors note that future research is warranted to examine possible disorder-specific habits among individuals with AN.
