The University of Cambridge will pay willing participants £250 to take part in an eating trial by the department for psychiatry.

The brain imaging "SPICE" study will focus on eating behaviours, and will involve two visits to Addenbrooke's Hospital.

The first visit will be a 'Screening Visit' and will take approximately two hours, all travel expenses will be paid.

This will involve blood tests, and questions about health history.

Secondly, an overnight visit, lasting around 36 hours will take place.

Questionnaires, computer tasks, two MRI scans and more blood sampling will take place during this second visit.

A letter from the University of Cambridge reads: "We are inviting participants to take part in a brain imaging study on eating behaviour.
