The functional interplay between hemispheres has been investigated in anorexia and bulimia nervosa with inter‐hemispheric functional connectivity measures. Compared to healthy subjects, inter‐hemispheric homotopic connectivity and spectral coherence were reduced in anorexia and bulimia patients in regions implicated in self‐referential, cognitive control and reward processing. Inter‐hemispheric connectivity may gather novel functional markers to explore aberrant features of eating disorders.
