The results should have been available in 2012, Has anybody seen the results of the study?

So far no one of the patients was able to spot the objects that could be seen from the ceiling. (www.dreamviews.com)
But the research goes on….

Does anyone know of any preliminary results? Surely if even one person descibes accurately the scene of their own death this should be released as its implications and its effects would be profound!

Preliminary results?
Since the study has already started are there any preliminary results from Dr. Parnia’s study?
Have any patients yet seen any of the images or words placed in high places in critical care areas?

The study will take about 3 years according to Dr Parnia. That would mean the results should be available in early 2012.
This is exciting stuff that will open up some very important questions for mankind.

how is the study doing?
have any patients yet seen any of the images or words
placed in high places in critical care areas?
i of course would love to hear that people with NDE
have indeed seen these unique images.
this is the most interesting study i have ever heard of.
i am a very curious cat :-)
is there a list of all the institutions involved in the study?
what a great idea.
