On the Perils and Pitfalls of Neuroimaging: Methodological Solutions and Reasons to Remain Optimistic About Neuroimaging in Eating Disorders
Over the last few years, several provocative publications have cast doubt upon the utility of neuroscientific methods to yield reliable and reproducible insights into the mechanisms of psychopathology, including eating disorders. Catastrophizing issues raised by these publications is understandable. However, there are many reasons to remain hopeful about the promise of neuroimaging and solutions do exist. Science is an inherently iterative process and the scientific community has developed new analytic approaches and refined methods to address concerns raised by these publications. The AED Neuroimaging SIG is planning a series of events to foster dialogue around these issues. This webinar kicks off this series: we have invited two experts who use neuroscience-informed methods to study restrictive eating disorders and binge-type eating disorders to briefly discuss the cutting-edge methods used in their research and the reasons they remain optimistic about neuroimaging.
