Motivation and Reward Mechanisms in Obesity

Study Description

Evaluating Motivation and Reward Mechanisms and Brain Substrates in Adults With Obesity

Anhedonia and abnormalities in reward behavior are core features of overweight/obesity (OW), a highly prevalent condition within MDD populations, and is independently associated with reward disturbances. The investigators therefore aim to investigate the brain substrates subserving reward and motivation in adults with overweight/obesity. The primary aim of this pilot study is to determine whether associations exist between obesity and decreased performance on the respective motivation/reward paradigms.
