Articles in scientific journals include a brief summary at the beginning of paper, known as an abstract. Abstracts provide background information, identify aims and hypothesis, give an overview of the project’s methods and results, and summarize findings. What is a visual abstract? A visual abstract aims to summarize a paper in a visual manner, depicting, […]
In order to gain insight into the mechanisms behind Gulf War Illness, researchers investigated human stem cells from veterans looking to understand GWI on a cellular level. Click here to read the full publication.
Mouse or rat models of Gulf War Illness are commonly used prior to human experimentation. Abstracts of some recent studies utilizing a mouse model of GWI are linked below. Prolonged Antibiotic Use Worsens Neuroinflammation and Increases the Risk of Neurodegeneration via Elevated Expression of Systemic IL-6 in Gulf War Illness Symptom Persistence Murine Model Nexinhib […]
High-order diffusion MRI has previously been shown the ability discriminate between different stages of neuroinflammatory signaling. Applying an innovative method, known as Neurite density imaging, (to high-order difussion MRI), researchers confirmed its ability to accurately distinguish between veterans with and without GWI. Looking specifically at the effects of chemical/biological weapons exposures and mild traumatic brain […]
