Applying Novel Technologies and Methods to Self-Regulation: Behavior Change Tools for Smoking and Binge Eating
Trial ID or NCT#
This study will evaluate the extent to which we can engage and manipulate putative targets within the self-regulation domain within and outside of laboratory settings in samples of smokers and overweight/obese individuals with binge eating disorder. This is the fourth phase of a study that aims to identify putative mechanisms of behavior change to develop an overarching "ontology" of self-regulatory processes.
