An Empirically Derived Three-Domain Model of Binge Eating Behavior

      Several factors, identified in various psychological models and theories, have been linked to binge-eating (BE) behaviors. Though commonalities exist between these theories, the main functional domains that contribute to the development and maintenance of these behaviors remain unclear. Here, we applied a data-driven dimension reduction approach to a broad community sample to develop an empirically based model of BE behaviors. We hypothesized that impairments in BE behavior are related to three broad functional domains shown to underlie addictive and impulsive behavior: 1) reward-related processing, 2) negative emotionality and 3) cognitive control.
