Brief Summary:

Background:

- We are studying people s psychological experiences and how these relate to the way people respond have when they see information communicated in different ways. We are testing multiple research questions in this research.

Objectives:

- To learn about how to design future research studies. Also to learn about how to best give people information about health topics.

Eligibility:

- Women with a Body Mass Index of 25 or higher.

Design:

  • Before the study visit, participants will answer some questions online about themselves, their experiences, and their thoughts about their weight.
  • During the study visit, participants will watch a short scene from a movie, and then answer questions about it.
  • Participants will have a simulated doctor visit with a computerized, virtual reality doctor. They will answer more questions about themselves, their experiences, and their thoughts about their weight. Then they will answer questions with researchers.
