Mechanisms of pathological eating behavior in children and adolescents

Who are we looking for?

Normal- and overweight children and adolescents between the ages of 10 and 16 years.

What do you get for participating?

Vouchers for the local bookstore or cinema (value: 20 €) as well as compensation for your time (55€).

Goals of the study

We hope that this study will contribute to a better understanding of pathological eating behavior and overweight in children and adolescents. We are particularly interested in how children and adolescents cope with stressful situations.

Children and adolescents will complete a short computer task, where they have to give both fast and accurate answers.
