Effects of Inhibitory Control Training in Eating Behaviors

Overweight and obese individuals will be randomly assigned to a food-specific or generic inhibitory control training. Food intake, weight, and neural indices of inhibitory control will be assessed prior, immediately after the 4-week intervention, and 12-weeks after intervention completion to assess the effectiveness of a mobile inhibitory control training intervention over time for health outcomes.

Behavioral - Inhibitory Control Training

Computerized go/no-go task where individuals make responses to certain items (go trials) and withhold responses from certain items (no-go trials, in this case, trials surrounded by a black box). Intervention is designed to target and improve inhibitory control cognitive mechanisms in general (generic arm) or towards high-calorie foods specifically (food arm).
