Please participate in our study.

Research into the subject of Muscle Dysmorphia is greatly lacking and if you’re a regular reader of this blog you will notice I care greatly about things of this nature. This research is a bonafide psychological study at The University of Central Lahcashire. The survey will take around 22 minutes and will add to an area of research at the forefront of modern socio/psychological research and governmental concern with regards to the health of many people in our societies.

The current study will assess group differences in executive functioning and exercise addiction in males and females, with and without symptoms of muscle dysmorphia (MD).  Variables known to influence both executive functioning and the development of MD will be controlled for (age, Body Mass Index, sexual orientation, depression, certain medications and substances (e.g., anti-depressants), dieting and fluid intelligence.

This study has been ethically approved by The Psychology department of  The University of Central Lancashire.

  1. YOUR BLOG IS AWESOME! JUST FOLLOWED! 🙂

  2. I have been through severe depressive disorders, anxiety and panic attacks, panic disorder, and insomnia for many years. I’ve tried Cymbalta, Paxil, and Effexor. Most recently, my doc prescribed Prozac, Ambien, Abilify, and Xanax. This combo appears to are good, although I still have severe difficulty sleeping. I’m hoping he will recommend a thing used in combination with the Ambien or extend the medication dosage; otherwise, the signs or symptoms have substantially minimized for me.
