We are looking for those who have previously had anorexia nervosa but have been well for the last year to participate in an MRI study. You should be a healthy female aged between 18 and 40 years. Additionally, you should not have any current health or psychiatric problems, be pregnant, or have had surgery in the past six weeks. Certain metallic implants may also disqualify you from participating. We’ll be scanning you in an MRI scanner, which is safe and non-invasive. Most of the scans will simply require you to lie still, but we will also ask you to do a task which measures compulsivity. Compulsivity is repetitively performing actions which aren’t rewarding or good for you.

If you are interested in participating in this study we’d like to hear from you! Feel free to ask questions – showing interest doesn’t commit you to anything! You will be compensated for your time if you decide to take part. You can email me on or call 01865 618318 for more information. This study is run in the University of Oxford, Department of Psychiatry.
