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 conducting a study to examine whether people who experience binge eating process information about food faster or slower than people who do not experience binge eating.

Your contribution may help people like you: Findings of this study will eventually be used to inform the design of effective treatment programs for people who experience binge eating. You’ll also learn more about your brain.

Study participants will be asked to complete a series of tasks while laying down in a MRI scanner, which uses non-harmful magnetic fields to take detailed pictures of different areas of the brain.

If you’re moderately overweight, fluent in English, age 18-50, right-hand dominant, and interested, please email us at poldrackexperiments@gmail.com.

Upon completion of one 0.5 hour session and one 2.5 hour 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 will be 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. 

If you have questions about the study, please reach out to poldrackexperiments@gmail.com. Participant’s rights questions, contact 1-866-680-2906.




Do you smoke cigarettes everyday?
