Researchers cite new findings on Gulf War Illness
Kelly Kennedy, USA TODAY, June 14, 2013

“WASHINGTON – Researchers have discovered two areas of brain atrophy in Gulf War veterans who responded differently to a heart-rate test, leading scientists to believe that even those with the same Gulf War Illness symptoms may need different kinds of treatments.

“It was shocking to us,” said Rakib Rayhan, lead author of the study and a researcher at Georgetown University Medical Center. “We were just floored.”

Each subgroup had distinct areas of damage to different parts of the brain.

The study will be released today in PLOS ONE journal.”
