Although both low ...

Pilot Study of Deep Brain Stimulation for Severe Anorexia Nervosa

Our hypothesis, based on prior research, is that DBS to the nucleus accumbens will have beneficial neural and symptomatic effects in severe Anorexia Nervosa. As a test of this hypothesis, and to evaluate acceptability and ethical issues we aim to initially study up to 10 patients. This study may provide ...
