Abstract

Anorexia nervosa and Bulimia nervosa are common chronic psychiatric diseases afflicting in particular female adolescents. During the acute phase of starvation a number of hormonal, neuropsychological and cerebral morphological changes occur. Some of these abnormalities are only partly reversible. Psychiatric comorbidities complicate the clinical picture and aggravate appropriate therapeutic interventions. The following review describes in detail the neuropsychological impairments in eating disorders, potential factors influencing cognitive performance, and resulting implications for clinical every day life.
