Participants Needed - Brain Imaging Study
Sunday, September 21, 2014
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.
