Several populations are at increased risk of developing eating disorders or food-related pathologies. This Special Issue seeks to examine the contributing factors, neural mechanisms, novel effective therapeutic strategies, and efforts to mitigate environmental and genetic risks for development of disordered eating. At-risk populations include but are not limited to those with a family history of eating pathology, intermittent dieting, weight control issues, food biases, body image issues, and military service history. Original research, methods, systematic reviews, and perspective papers are welcome. Relevant animal studies are also welcomed.
