New Video on ME/CFS: "Biomarker"

I've put up a new video about Alan and Kathleen Light's 2009 study of gene expression in CFS.

By a fairly amazing coincidence, an article on the Light's continuing research in this area was published the day after I put up this video.


I actually began work on the animation in 2011, but I put it aside to work on "Mind The Abyss," which I continue to work on today. I decided to finish this animation for ME Awareness Month after reading Hillary Johnson's tweet bemoaning the lack of discussion of the 30 years worth of scientific evidence on ME/CFS at the recent IOM meeting.

Anyway, back to "Mind The Abyss: Part II." :)
