From the article:
"Twenty-five years ago, Brian Zimmerman was a strong 6-foot-1 inch, 185-pound Army infantryman in prime physical condition fighting Iraqi forces in Operation Desert Storm.
He witnessed charred Iraqi bodies on the "Highway of Death," including a dead child, took part in a tank battle, and was close to an Iraqi ammunition depot called Khamisiyah that upon detonation is believed to have released nerve agents such as sarin and cyclosarin in the direction of U.S. troops.
Today, Zimmerman, 45, is still entrenched in a battle, but one worlds apart from his military days. "
In early November, seven of the Brian Sciences Center's researchers presented posters at the SfN confrence in San Diego. The confrence connected a total of 30,353 attendees from 80 countries with 557 exhibiting companies, 14,020 posters, and more than 850 sessions.
