• The Neurobiology of Appetite Regulation in Anorexia Nervosa
Are you a woman between 18-45 years old?
Do you have or think you might have an eating disorder?

We are conducting a research study at Massachusetts General Hospital to investigate the relationship between a natural hormone, depression, and anxiety in eating disorders.

As part of this study, we are using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans to investigating the relationship between hormones, brain activity, and appetite. MRI is a non-invasive way to view brain activity without using X-rays.

The study includes a screening visit to confirm eligibility and 7 visits over the course of 8 months.
o Physical and psychological assessments
o Measurement of hormones and safety labs
o 2 bone density scans
o 3 neuroimaging MRIs

Eligible participants will receive $1,000.00 for completing the study. Local transportation and parking costs will be reimbursed.
