If you are a woman between the ages of 18 and 60 years and you have times when you eat a very large amount of food and feel out of control when eating, you may be eligible to participate in a research study on biology, behaviour, and binge eating in women.

During the lab visits, you will be asked to complete clinical interviews and several physiology tasks. If eligible, you will be paid $200 in return for your participation in all aspects of the study. To find out if you are likely to be eligible, please complete our brief screening questionnaire.
