Implicit Priming in Obese Individuals

Study Description

Neuronal and Behavioral Effects of Implicit Priming in Obese Individuals

The overall goals of this project are to determine the impact of an implicit priming intervention, designed to alter food perceptions, on both brain responses to food and on food intake behaviors in overweight/obese individuals. The investigators hypothesized that this bottom-up sensory-level conditioning approach would effectively result in reduced preference for high-calorie foods.
