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.
