There were six main phases in the study. The first phase was finding patients for the clinical trial. In order to find participants, recruitment information was posted on the Emory University website. Out of the 1091 who had interest in the study 323 people had a telephone interview, 194 were chosen to submit medical records, 39 were screened in person, and in the end only 17 participants were chosen in the trial. After the evaluation phase, the 17 patients were screened further and were allowed to continue taking their current psychotropic medications, although no new medications were able to be added. In the surgery phase electrodes bilaterally into inserted into the subcallosal cingulate with local or general anesthesia.
