Marcie L. Zinn Ph.D., Research Psychologist in Psychophysiology, Rehabilitation, Cognitive Neuroscience and Data Science conducting myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) research with her husband, Mark Zinn,at their nonprofit, the NeuroCognitive Research Institute of California and Illinois. Marcie's research interests include the study of brain dysfunction in chronic disease, such as myalgic encephalomyelitis. Marcie and her husband, Mark also founded the Society for Neuroscience and Psychology in the Performing Arts. Her early research and career interests were in Performance Neuroscience and Psychology, but after being diagnosed in 2009 with herpes viral encephalitis which developed into 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. While continuing to collaborate with Jose Montoya at Stanford, she and her husband Mark have published research using brain network modeling in the study of ME brain dysfunction.
