The University of Chicago is conducting a research study designed to better understand relations among biological measures, cognitive function, and eating problems in female adolescents aged 12-19 years with restrictive eating disorders.
Participants will be asked to complete questionnaires and interviews, have their blood drawn, and undergo an MRI scan. Study participation involves at least two visits to the University of Chicago in Hyde Park. Each visit will take approximately 1-2 hours to complete. Participation will involve completing interviews, questionnaires and behavioral tasks, a blood draw, and having a brain imaging scan (MRI).
Eligible participants are:
2. Between 12 and 19 years old
3. Currently restricting the amount of food they eat
Participants will receive $150 as compensation for their time and effort.
