We are the Oxford Centre for Emotions and Affective Neuroscience and using fMRI we explore the link between eating behaviour and cognitive abilities in a healthy adult population. We want to understand how eating is linked to our response to food-related information. MRI is a type of non-invasive brain scan that allows us to see how the brain is organised, processes information and performs skills like speech or memory.

The study consists of two test sessions, each lasting about 2 hours. During each session you will first be asked to fill in some questionnaires and we will measure blood glucose levels. After that, during the MRI scan you will be asked to perform some simple tasks like watching food and non-food pictures. 

We are looking for healthy, fluent English-speaking, right-handed women aged 18-40 who are not pregnant, do not have any metal in their head or body (except fillings), have not had surgery in the past six weeks, and do not have any metallic implants (e.g. a pacemaker). 

Participants will be reimbursed for their time.
