There are a number of exciting research studies on eating disorders currently taking place in Australia. Many of these researchers are actively looking for participants.
To foster collaboration and research participation we maintain a directory of ethically approved Australian research projects on our website. If you are interested in participating, or know someone who might be interested, check out our research directory.
If you have a current research study that you would like us to include in our listings, or you would like some help recruiting study participants, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The role of mood in eating behaviour as a mediator for the relationship between sleep and body weight
About: This project aims to explore the relationship between body weight, sleep quality and eating behaviour. Previous research has found that two forms of eating behaviours, binge eating and night eating, explain some of the relationship between overweight/obesity and sleep disturbance. This research seeks to explore the role that mood plays in eating behaviours as an explanatory factor of the relationship between sleep disturbance and body weight.
Participation involves: If you agree to take part in the research, you will be asked to complete one online survey. Your data will remain completely confidential, and your responses will not be able to be traced back to you at any stage. The research is conducted entirely online, and should take you less than half an hour to complete.
