1) to examine the repeatability of the quantitative scoring system for the Rey Complex Figure Test (RCFT) developed by Taylor, as well as of the scoring system developed by Booth to measure central coherence; 2) to examine the effects of hospital treatment on visuo-spatial memory, central coherence, and clinical status in a sample of anorexia nervosa (AN) inpatients; 3) to examine the relationship between neuropsychological characteristics, as assessed by the RCFT, and the clinical status of AN patients, as assessed by BMI and self-reporting measures (CR-EAT and EDE-Q); 4) to explore any possible correlation between the observed neuropsychological characteristics and the outcome of hospital treatment. We examined a sample of 31 AN inpatients, 29 women and 2 men. All patients completed the RCFT upon admission, and 21 patients were re-tested at the discharge, the test consisting of both a copy and recall trial. They also completed self-reporting measures (CR-EAT and EDE-Q) and their BMI was measured at both baseline and discharge. (...) This is suggested both by the correlations between this EDE-Q scale and the accuracy of the recall (p<0.05) and the central coherence of the recall (p=0.063) at the baseline, as well as by the correlations between the accuracy of the recall (p<0.05) and the central coherence...
