Abstract

Ovarian hormones are associated with risk for binge eating in women. Recent animal and human studies suggest that food-related reward processing may be one set of neurobiological factors that contribute to these relationships, but additional studies are needed to confirm and extend findings.

Keywords: binge eating; estrogen; ovarian hormones; progesterone; reward.
