FIS (Food Image Study)

The Food Image Study is trying to learn how the brain responds to different images of food and whether it differs by weight group.

We are recruiting healthy adults who are willing to participate in the study activities.

All participants will have one screening phone call and one session of in-person visit at the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle, Washington.
Study visits will typically last ~2 hours, including a 45-minute session of MRI.
Participants will be asked to fast for at least 4 hours before the study visit, complete one session of MRI, body measurements, and complete questionnaires.

Participants will be paid $50 for the completion of the study.

Please fill out this initial online screen form before we schedule a phone screen:

Eligibility will be determined by phone screening questions and confirmed following an screening visit.
