Scans of Gulf war veterans show memory impairment

Brain scans of Gulf war veterans have revealed neurological differences that may be caused by exposure to toxic chemicals such as nerve agents and pesticides used during the conflict.

The study of veterans from the first Gulf war, which began after Iraq invaded Kuwait in 1990, found that two regions of the brain involved in memory and thinking were smaller among those apparently most affected by Gulf war syndrome illnesses. The same personnel also fared worse in simple tests of cognitive ability

The findings do not go far enough to prove that exposure to chemicals caused mental impairment among the veterans, and may instead reveal a group of individuals whose brain anatomy makes them more likely to suffer health problems when they come into contact with battlefield chemicals.
Researchers at Boston University scanned 36 veterans, half of whom reported more than five symptoms, such as joint pain, fatigue, forgetfulness, headaches, nausea and skin rashes. The other half reported fewer than five symptoms.

Comparison of the brain scans showed that the size of the entire cortex, or grey matter, was on average 5% smaller in those with the worst symptoms, while a part of the brain called the cingulate gyrus was 6% smaller. Those with the worst symptoms also scored between 12 and 15% lower on learning and memory tests.

Roberta White, who described the research at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurology in Boston yesterday, said: "We don't know the cause of these differences in the veterans' brain volumes, but the hypothesis is that they are related to exposure to hazardous substances during the first Gulf war."

The scientists intend to scan more veterans and will compare the brain scans of those exposed to different chemicals. During the conflict there was widespread use of organophosphate pesticides, sprayed directly on to the skin, around tents and impregnated into uniforms. Some military personnel were exposed to sarin and similar nerve agents, in particular those around the Khamisiya weapons depot that was bombed by US forces.

Some of the symptoms reported by the veterans are similar to those experienced by survivors of the 1995 sarin attack by the religious sect Aum Shinrikyo on the Tokyo subway, said Dr White.

The study was received with caution by Simon Wessley, director of the Centre for Military Health Research at King's College London. "The time to try to find out exactly what went wrong with Gulf veterans was probably a decade ago. By now so many other things have happened; they are older, many drink, they may be depressed, and all these things can change the size of regions of the brain," he said.

"Also, it's not very helpful because it's almost inconceivable that anything like this will lead to a treatment and many Gulf veterans continue to have symptoms and disability - and, frankly, not a lot is being done for them."
