Neuroimaging Markers for Studying Gulf War Illness

In a sample population of veterans from the Gulf War Illness Consortium (GWIC), multiple different neuroimaging techniques were applied to look for diagnostic biomarkers. Statistical analyses compared T1-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (T1W-MRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), and novel neurite density imaging (NDI). Results supported previous findings that NDI is most effective in distinguishing characteristics of […]

Plasma Autoantibodies as a Diagnostic Tool for GWI

This study, featured on the cover of this issue of the Brain Sciences journal, puts forth groundbreaking implications for diagnosing Gulf War Illness (GWI). Adding to the frustration of GWI, is the fact that to date, there isn’t an objective tool for diagnosis. Findings of this research revealed significant elevation in Central Nervous System (CNS) […]
