We are seeking volunteers for a research study looking at emotional factors and brain functioning that may be related to eating and/or weight status in children. The purpose of this study is to better understand factors that may be involved in excess energy intake in children in order to improve weight loss interventions.
We are currently recruiting volunteers who are:
- Between 10 and 17 years old
- Able to read and understand English fluently
- Not currently pregnant
- Willing and able to undergo a 1-hour MRI scan
Study participation involves 2 clinic visits. Both visits will last ~2 hours. Participation will involve having height and weight measured; completing questionnaires and a semi-structured interview; and viewing different pictures while undergoing an MRI scan. Participants will be compensated for each study visit as compensation for their time and effort.
Participants cannot have serious medical conditions resulting in appetite or weight changes, currently be taking medications that affect appetite or weight, or have a current or past diagnosis of bulimia nervosa or anorexia nervosa.
Interested participants should contact the study coordinator, Caroline West (Project Coordinator), at
