    thought+object+present tense?

    In a study that looked at medical students' perceptions of ECT, more than half thought ECT causes pain, nearly a quarter thought it causes brain damage, and 40% felt it was misused by psychiatrists.

    Shouldn't it be "more than half thought ECT caused pain, nearly a quarter thought it caused brain damage"?
