The aim of this study was the analysis of psychological and neurobiological aspects (structural and functional alterations concerning the processing of taste stimuli) of AN. All AN patients in this study suffered from medical complications such as low blood pressure (hypotension), amenorrhoea, a low heart beat (bradycardia), electrolyte disturbances, and diarrhea. This indicates a high health risk of the patients with AN as the medical complications which are related to the disease can lead to mortality (Lemberg, 1999).
