The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) provides neuroscientific research with a multimodal framework for measuring various mental health disorders. Further elucidation of the etiology of eating disorders: anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa can be aided by comparing these two disorders within the RDoC framework, namely: (a) positive/negative valence, (b) arousal systems, (c) regulatory systems, (d) perceptual and cognitive processes and (e) social processes. Significant measures of these domains include the examination of genes, neurotransmitter systems, structure and function of neural circuits, behavioral measures, self-report data and cognitive paradigms. With this in mind, the present review uses the multimodal RDoC framework to consider significant units of measurement for further elucidation of the underlying processes of eating disorders, across a spectrum of restrictive and binge eating.
