Brain function and food research study

Help a team of researchers in ASU’s College of Health Solutions, who are examining how food and food access are related to brain function among college students.

We are seeking full-time ASU undergraduate students ages 18-25 to participate in our study. If you qualify, you will be invited to Banner Health in Phoenix for a functional MRI (brain scan) to record brain activity during cognitive function tasks. After your brain scan, you will complete a survey on food access and health behaviors. Your appointment will end after both the brain scan and survey have been completed.

We have adapted our protocols to enable as much at-home participation as possible. The study at Banner Health should take a total of two hours. You will receive a $20 gift card and a picture of your brain scan as compensation.

Please complete this brief survey to see if you are eligible to participate. Participation is voluntary.
