A research & teaching & treatment laboratory of Maastricht University.

Maastricht Eat-Lab scientists study the psychology of eating disorders and obesity. Our studies focus on the discovery and unraveling of psychological mechanisms that maintain disordered eating and on the development of new interventions that tackle these mechanisms. This may, in the end, lead to better treatments for eating and weight disorders.


Our group consists of 25 researches with 500+ publications. This site contains profiles for each researcher, including publications.

About us

Our studies focus on both abnormal and normal eating behaviour. Our ultimate aim is to develop better interventions for people with eating disorders and obesity.
