A paper titled "Women with Anorexia Nervosa do not show altered tactile localization compared to healthy controls" by OCC PhD student Judith Mergen, Anouk Keizer, Maarten van den Heuvel and OCC members Katja Kölkebeck and Heiko Wagner has been published in Psychiatry Research. The authors present the results of two experiments investigating a one-point-localization task. Results are interpreted in the context of the phenomenon of overestimation in patients with Anorexia Nervosa.
