The effect of attention on body size adaptation and body dissatisfaction

Dataset

Description

This study included three experiments investigating the effect of attention on body size adaptation and body dissatisfaction. Participants (n = 370 women in total) were trained to attend towards either high or low fat body stimuli, using a modified dot probe task. We manipulated the experimental setting (online versus face to face) and the stimulus-onset asynchrony of the dot probe task (500ms versus 100ms). For each experiment, we analysed the effect of the attention training on: 1) attention to subsequently-presented high versus low fat body stimuli, 2) visual adaptation to body size, and 3) body dissatisfaction. We did not obtain informed consent to share the participant data; therefore, we have not included our original data sheet in this deposit. However, we have included a synthetic data sheet created from our original data sheet.
