Struggling with bulimia? Be part of a research study!

If you're between 15 and 30 and female, there's a chance you can make a difference in the future understanding and treatment of bulimia.  Check out this study at the University of California, San Diego:

UCSD Decision-making and Reward MRI Study of Bulimia Nervosa

The UCSD Eating Disorder Center for Research is looking for female volunteers with current or past Bulimia Nervosa to participate in their study. The project is a brain imaging study looking at how participants make decisions about and experience rewards. Those who are eligible to participate will be requested to fill out questionnaires and carry out tasks while undergoing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. 

Study participants must be 15-30 years old, meet criteria for a primary diagnosis of bulimia nervosa, be right handed and be able to have an MRI. The study visit is one morning, would last for about 2 hours during which they would complete a 1-1.5hour scan. For their time they would be compensated $150.

If you think you might qualify for the study please email the study coordinator to set up a screening at
