Do you eat more than you want and feel out of control?
Researchers at Stanford are conducting a study to examine how people who binge eat process information about food.
Your contribution may help people like you: Study findings could inform the design of future treatment programs. You'll also learn more about your brain.
Study participants will be asked to complete a series of tasks while laying down in a functional Magnetic Resonance Scanner (MRI), which uses non-harmful magnetic fields to take detailed pictures of different areas of the brain.
You'll be asked to fill out an online eligibility questionnaire and, if eligible, invited to come in for a half hour introductory session and a 2.5 hour fMRI scanning session, both at Stanford.
Upon completion of each session, you will be paid $20 at Session 1 and $80 at Session 2. Parking vouchers will be provided, and you will receive a printed image of your brain.
The study is conducted at the Center for Cognitive and Neurobiological Imaging (CNI) at Stanford. The CNI is located in the basement of the Psychology Department, Jordan Hall, building 420.
