Psychology Department Seeks Study Volunteers
The Department of Psychology is recruiting subjects to participate in a research study on the effectiveness of a medication for the behavioral treatment of night eating syndrome or NES.
Persons with NES eat an excessive amount of food late in the evening or at night and experience restless or disturbed sleep, a lack of hunger in the morning and a negative mood that worsens during the evening.
Volunteers may be able to participate in this study if they:
- Have symptoms of NES
- Are between the ages of 18 and 65
- Have no serious or uncontrolled medical conditions
- Are not pregnant / planning to become pregnant in the next 6 months
- Are not seriously overweight or are actively dieting to lose weight
- Are not currently taking psychotropic medications
All those who qualify and decide to participate will receive, at no cost, study-related educational materials, behavioral and skills training, and behavioral inventories.
