Typically developing children needed for research study to measure food interest

Jan. 19, 2018, 3:41 PM

Child volunteers are needed for a Vanderbilt University Medical Center research study that will look at how eye movements and brain activity measure interest in food. Your child may qualify if he or she is 3 to 12 years old.

This study will involve:

  • One research visit to Vanderbilt for one hour
  • Looking at pictures
  • Answering general knowledge and food-interest questions
  • Wearing a soft “hair net” with sponges (to record brain activity)

Volunteers will be compensated for their time.

For more information, please contact Alexandra Key, (615) 322-3498.
