Marcie L. Zinn, Ph.D., (born 1951) is an experimental psychologist conducting myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) research with her husband, Mark Zinn, and Dr. Leonard Jason at the DePaul Center for Community Research. Marcie's research interests include the study of myalgic encephalomyelitis as well as Performing Arts Neuroscience and Psychology. Her early research and career interests were in Performance Neuroscience and Psychology, but after being diagnosed in 2009 with viral encephalitis which became Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, her interest turned toward using her extensive qEEG and neuroscience skills for research in ME. Under the leadership of Dr. Jose Montoya, she conducted a pilot study to look at cognitive dysfunction using qEEG methods. She and her husband Mark have recently moved to Chicago to work with Dr. Leonard Jason and have published four articles, all of which illustrate qEEG methods in the study of ME brain dysfunction.
Open Letter to The Lancet
Two open letters to the editor of The Lancet urged the editor to commission a fully independent review of the PACE trial, which the journal had published in 2011. In 2016, Dr. Zinn, along with 41 colleagues in the ME/CFS field, signed the second letter.
