In its most basic form impulsivity, a heritable trait, is defined as atendency to act without control and has been implicated in the onset,symptomatic expression, and maintenance of overeating. Specifically, highimpulsivity and its related constructs such as poor inhibitory control and highsensitivity for reward and environmental cues have been shown to perpetuatebinging and overeating. Thus, several studies have been conducted toinvestigate the possible common genetic etiologies for high impulsivity andovereating. The purpose of this review is to summarize the genetic findingsindicating an association between impulsivity and overeating.
