The UCLA Eating Disorders Program is currently conducting a study of individuals with anorexia nervosa. We are interested in understanding patterns of visual and emotional information processing using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI.)

We are enrolling individuals with anorexia who are underweight but in treatment, whom we will scan a second time after they are weight-restored (BMI≥18.5). We are also recruiting anorexics that are already weight-restored.

Individuals will be compensated up to $75.00
