Basal Ganglia Problem Linked to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

New research links dysfunction in the basal ganglia (a region of the brain) to physical and mental fatigue in chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). Researchers looked into this region because of its connection with fatigue in neurological disorders, including Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases. It's also linked to function of the neurotransmitter dopamine, which is believed to be dysregulated in
ME/CFS.
