Child Who May Be Heavy For Their Age
About This Research Study:
This study seeks to explore how the brain affects eating behaviors in children over time.
We are hoping to learn more about differences in brain structure and function in children and if these differences affect body weight and the control of food intake over time

We are looking for healthy kids ages 9-11 years old heavy for their age that do not have a history of any chronic diseases, eating disorders, or cognitive disorders, have no food allergies or dietary restrictions, not currently taking medications known to alter appetite, body weight, or brain response, and have no MRI contraindications.
