Volunteer

We currently have the following opportunities available for research participants:

Do you eat more than you want and feel out of control?

Researchers at Stanford are examining how engagement with a mobile app may change the behavior of people who over eat or binge eat. Study findings may inform future treatments.

If you are interested in trying to change your behavior, age 18-50, and right-hand dominant take our eligibility survey here!

Participants will be asked to engage with an interactive mobile platform for 28 consecutive days. There will be four prompts per day, each taking about 1-2 minutes to complete. Study participants will also be asked to complete a series of tasks while laying down in a functional Magnetic Resonance Scanner (fMRI), which uses non-harmful magnetic fields to take detailed pictures of different areas of the brain.

You will be compensated up to $350 and you'll also receive a printed/digital copy of your brain scan.

Questions? Email poldracklab@stanford.edu or call 650-492-5740
