Anorexia nervosa treatment trial

Anorexia nervosa treatment trial

We're looking for participants to take part in a treatment trial to assess the effectiveness of non-invasive brain stimulation for people with anorexia nervosa.

The purpose of the study is to see whether a type of brain stimulation called transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) helps improve the symptoms of anorexia nervosa.

tDCS treatment involves a low electrical current being administered to your scalp. This is a very common technique. It's used to improve the symptoms of various conditions and also to enhance performance of certain tasks in healthy people.

The trial involves 10 days of tDCS treatment over a two-week period, with assessments at different points in time.

Am I eligible?

To be eligible to participate in the study, you must be:

  • over 18 years of age
  • female
  • right-handed
  • have a current diagnosis of anorexia nervosa.
