Abstract

Self-perception of body image has been shown to have a link with several forms of pathology including eating disorders, depression and psychological distress. Recently, an automated computer program was released which uses readily available digital photography equipment to record psychophysical measurements of a subject's self-perception of body image. The interactive nature of the program leads to questions of statistical design. We discuss statistical models which incorporate the psychophysical data collection as well as design issues for dependent Bernoulli trials.
