This is the first book to focus on the psychobiological complexity of bulimic disorders. The contributions on the pathobiochemistry and pathophysiology of bulimia nervosa represent the state-of-the-art in the rapidly expanding field of research into nutritional behavior. Aspects essential for the understanding of psychosomatic interactions in bulimia are also elucidated. The therapy of bulimia nervosa is then discussed by experts from both America and Europe with a view to the roles played by basic psychological and somatic research. The possibilities for the regulation of hunger and satiety in patients with eating disorders are considered. The book aims to bridge the gap between laboratory and clinic and to stimulate dialogue between researchers and practitioners.
