  • They also had unusual activation patterns in their frontostriatal systems, which help control and guide behavior and maintain emotional flexibility in responding to situations.

  • In addition, differences in activity in the frontostriatal system varied based on participant reports of how disgusting or repulsive they found each image.

  • The findings imply, the researchers said, that "self-regulatory processes are impaired in women with [bulimia], likely because of their failure to engage frontostriatal circuits appropriately."

  • When controls responded correctly to incongruent trials, their responses were associated with significantly greater activity in frontostriatal regions compared with patients, including:

  • The greater impulsivity was paralleled by different patterns of activation of frontostriatal regions of the brain, as seen in functional magnetic resonance imaging, the researchers said.

  • It was also limited by the lack of a control group of impulsive individuals with healthy weights and eating behaviors, which would have allowed a more precise assessment of frontostriatal abnormalities in people with bulimia.

  • The researchers say the differences in performance and patterns of brain activity suggest that individuals with bulimia nervosa do not activate frontostriatal circuits appropriately and this inability contributes to their inability to regulate binge-type eating and other impulsive behaviours.
