Stress and Cognitive Bias to Unhealthy Food Cues in Emotional Eaters

The Department of Family Medicine and the Texas Prevention Institute are conducting a research study on adult women, 18 years or older. Participants will attend a one-time, 1.5 hour visit to complete a set of questionnaires and respond to computerized words and colors. Participants will then be placed in either a stress or no-stress group. The stress group will be asked to complete two stress-related activities. The no-stress group will read magazines in a quiet room. Both groups then repeat the computerized test. If you are a woman, 18 or older, you may qualify! Participants will receive compensation and resource information for their time and effort. Whether or not you choose to participate will not affect your academic standing or employment status.
