GP BARI-EEG Study (Gastric Bypass Brain Activity & Reward: Investigating Via EEG)

Seeking undergraduates with interests in neuroscience for regular participation in neuroimaging studies of patients who are obese and/or have bariatric surgery histories. Multiple studies will be taking place over time. We are interested in how the brain's reward circuitry ultimately influences long-term weight management and other behavioral outcomes. We will use data procured from these studies to directly inform interventions for this population.
