BrainStructural Brain Changes in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

By Adrienne Dellwo, About.com Guide
December 5, 2011

Research Brief

A new study suggests that structural brain changes may be responsible for some symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS).

Researchers used a type of neuroimmaging called voxel-based morphometry, which allows them to map the brain and look for anatomical abnormalities.

They say the results showed reductions in grey matter in the:

  • Right & left occipital lobes,
  • Right angular gyrus,
  • Posterior division of the parahippocampal gyrus.

White matter (glia) was reduced in the left occipital lobe.
