Two reports by NBC News Channel and Ivanhoe Medical Breakthroughs aired Feb. 15-21 in 83 markets on a UCLA study by Dr. Jamie Feusner, assistant professor of psychiatry at the Semel Institute, that linked body dysmorphic disorder to a glitch in how the brain processes visual information. People with BDD look normal but see themselves as disfigured or hideous. Feusner was featured in both reports.
