How we measure cognitive flexibility for eating disorder research

Cognitive flexibility is the ability to dynamically adjust your thinking in response to changing demands. The aim of this study is to assess how we measure cognitive flexibility for eating disorder research.

You are invited to take part in a research study about cognitive flexibility. We want to better understand how different measures of cognitive-behavioral flexibility relate to each other. 

The study will involve four short cognitive tasks and 4 short questionnaires which include demographic questions, and questions about your mood and eating patterns.

You can participate on-campus at the University of Sydney, or you can participate from home. If you would like to participate from home, we will provide on-phone support during the study. It is estimated that the study will take you no more than 60 minutes. 

We welcome adult participants of all ages and stages of recovery.

Ethics committee approval no: 2021/020


You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:

  • Are over 18 years old
  • Have received a formal diagnosis of Anorexia Nervosa from a medical professional at some time in your life. This can be a current diagnosis, or a past diagnosis.
