Research has supported a link between emotional disorders (such as depression and anxiety) and information processing biases of attention and memory. This article reviews the extension of this approach to such biases in eating disorders. Two paradigms are considered in detail: the modified Stroop task and the dot probe task. In addition, the relative merits and problems associated with both approaches are considered. The limitations of the current research for clinical practice are discussed and suggestions are made for ways in which the research may be made more ecologically valid.
