Brain Imaging Study for Healthy Adults

What is the study?

The Minnesota Center for Eating Disorders Research is seeking adults without history of an eating disorder for a study examining how the brain responds to decisions on computer tasks (one that involves choosing Internet video clips, one that involves chosing foods to eat) to better understand eating disorders.

Who can participate?

  • Interviews & questionnaires
  • Height and blind weight

  • fMRI scan
  • Eating meals in the laboratory
  • Two 3-5.5 hour visits

Participants will be compensated $120 (plus earned bonuses) for their time.
