1) USC Brain Influences on Teens’ Eating (BITE) study
This study will examine how biobehavioral measures of inhibitory control are associated with real-world eating and dietary intake behaviors of adolescents and how inhibitory control modulates associations between contextual factors and eating and dietary intake behaviors.
2) USC Mobile Eating, Appetite, and Lifestyle (MEAL) study
This study will characterize various eating patterns in daily life and investigate diagnostic and theoretical overlap between food addiction and binge-eating disorder.
3) Binge Eating Ecological Momentary Assessment (BEEMA) study
This completed study examined how trait-based neurocognitive factors and momentary contextual factors are related to binge eating in a transdiagnostic sample of women.
