The review strategy has been registered on PROSPERO
The Eating Behaviour Project:
Researchers at Griffith University are currently seeking participants for a study we are conducting: An Investigation into Eating Behaviour (GU ref no: 2018/205). We are seeking participants aged 18 and over to provide information about their eating behaviours and personality characteristics. Participation will take between 30-45 minutes. To thank-you for your participation, you can opt to go into a draw to win one (1) of ten (10) $50 Coles-Myer vouchers.

An Investigation into the Influence of Fixed Feedback on Disinhibition
Does the provision of fixed feedback reduce disinhibition? This project aimed to address this question by exposing participants to conditions of reward, and punishment combined with fixed and non-fixed feedback in a Go/No-Go Task. Measures of personality were also administered (i.e., reward sensitivity, extraversion, neuroticism). Results indicate that reward sensitivity moderates the relationship between neuroticism and fixed feedback on disihibition.
