Brain scans show impairment in ME/CFS at rest

The study identified decreased intrinsic connectivity among regions within the left fronto-parietal networks.

Also, the study confirmed functional connectivity in patients with ME/CFS was significantly correlated with the severity of their chronic fatigue.

Both the findings of impairment at rest and correlation with fatigue severity add to mounting evidence of physical dysfunction in ME/CFS and highlight areas for future research into the disabling disease.
