Neural Functioning of Feeding Centers in Obese Youth
Diseases and Conditions Researched
Insulin Resistance; Obesity
What is the purpose of this trial?
To explore whether obese adolescents with insulin resistance and relative low leptin levels exhibit functional alterations of the neuronal circuits involved in the regulation of energy metabolism and food seeking behaviors.
We here propose to test the hypothesis that the reward circuitry is dysregulated in obese adolescents and is related to the degree of insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia.

How will my information be used?
When you express interest in a specific study, the information from your profile will be sent to the doctor conducting that study. If you're eligible to participate, you may be contacted by a nurse or study coordinator.
If you select a health category rather than a specific study, doctors who have active studies in that area may contact you to ask if you would like to participate.
In both cases, you will be contacted by the preferred method (email or phone) that you specified in your profile.
