This study, funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, aims to examine: 1) differences in the neural circuitry related to food reward between adolescents at high risk for weight gain and low-risk adolescents; 2) the effects of abnormalities in the neural circuitry related to food reward to future weight gain and obesity onset; and 3) changes in food reward after obesity onset.
