    Genetic mutations in the pathways that control sleep. Could this study in mice begin to unlock additional clues in the sleep abnormalities experienced by humans? The sodium channel pathway continues to provide a trail of bread crumbs - I wonder if these clues are being actively investigated in current M.E. research?

    More information about the study is available at "Science Daily" -
