DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2006
BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT
Ms. STABENOW. I would agree with my friend from South Dakota. The Center for Chronic Pain and Fatigue Research at the University of Michigan is the national leader in the research of chronic multisymptom illnesses. Their recent research has used advanced functional brain imaging technology to demonstrate the similarity in dysfunctional pain processing between a group of veterans suffering from gulf war illnesses and a group of civilians diagnosed with fibromyalgia. The center's work has taken on added importance because of our Nation's current military deployments and deserves the continued support of Congress and the Department of Defense.
