The second half of 2014 saw increased patient enrollment in the Monti/Newberg study conducted at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital (TJUH). Increased enrollment is attributed to outreach efforts from TJUH, as well as in response to an article published in The Philadelphia Inquirer, which focused on the study.
Drs. Monti and Newberg hope to complete all aspects of treatment and fMRI scanning two to three months after all patients have been enrolled. They will then begin data analysis and manuscript preparation. The analysis will take one to two months since there will be a lot of imaging data to review. The paper will be written shortly afterwards.
