Phase IX – Funded Studies Underway

A. A new study to extend our novel statistical approach to brain imaging to allow combining imaging findings from several types of brain images to gain more insight into the disease than possible from any one of them – supported by a grant from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, NIH.

B. A new study in our national sample of veterans to perform special MR spectroscopy brain scans to measure and compare the concentrations of phosphorus compounds in the brain (31P MRS scanning) of ill and well Gulf War veterans – supported by the Gulf War Illness Research Program of DOD's Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program.
