Full Title
Exploring Neural Mechanisms Underlying Reinforcer Pathology Differences Among Obesity-Discordant Adolescents
This study explores reasons why siblings differ in weight status. It asks why do some siblings fall into different body weight groups (such as underweight versus overweight) even when they grow up in the same home environment?

The study includes one in-lab visit for 90-120-minutes. During the visit, you and your children will read and sign consent and assent forms. You will also fill out questionnaires, and have heights and weights taken. Then, you and your children will complete activities on a computer. The first activity asks you to make choices about different amounts of money. The second asks how much you are willing to spend on snack foods.

Compensation for finishing the study is $75.
Compensation: Yes
Compensation may include cash, checks, gift cards, debit cards, or incentives like gift baskets, technology items, or merchandise.
