Several factors, identified in various psychological models and theories, have been
linked to binge-eating (BE) behaviors. Though commonalities exist between these theories,

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.
