 Are you a healthy female between 10-21 years old?

You may be eligible for a research study investigating using magnetic resonance imaging 
(MRI) to investigate the relationship between hormones, brain activity and appetite. MRI 
is a non-invasive way to view brain activity without using X-rays.

This study includes one screening visit to confirm eligibility and three morning visits 
which will include a meal, questionnaires, blood draws and two MRI scans. Visits will be 
spread over 18 months and will occur at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA 
and at the Martinos Biomedical Imaging Center in Charlestown, MA.

Eligible participants will receive $350 for completing the study. Local transportation and 
parking costs will be reimbursed.

In order to be eligible, participants must not have taken oral contraceptives (birth control 
pills) or other medication containing hormones and must be able and willing to 
participate in MRI scans. 

Please follow the link below to fill out our survey or contact Meghan Slattery, NP, via 
email at or by phone at (617) 643-0267 for more information.
