2000). These systems can, with varying degrees of success, encode, store, and retrieve an enormous variety of information, including much that is adaptively arbitrary and evolutionarily novel--from nonsense syllables, jingles, and batting averages to chess moves, equations, and the triple lutz. However, there is an important difference between what a system can do and its evolved function. Memory

E audio-recorded and transcribed verbatim into Microsoft Word files by an independent transcriber. Interviews continued until saturation of themes had been achieved. This was determined when no new themes were arising across the interviews. This process resulted in a total of N = 20 participants (n = 13 symptomatic, n = 7 improved).AnalysisHeight and weight data were used to calculate body mass in

Describe the nature of the symptom profile of participants in samples where a clinical interview has not been feasible. The major shortfall of this approach is that the EDE-Q is confined to assessing cognitive and behavioural disturbances over the past 28 days, and thus criteria related to a threemonth minimum duration (e.g., of regular binge eating in bulimia nervosa) cannot be applied. For a pro
