Brain Abnormalities Found by Stanford University Study

This small study used a type of MRI scan to examine whether there were any differences in the brain volume and structure of 15 people with CFS, to use the studies own terminology, as compared with 14 controls.

The researchers found the volume of white matter (brain cell nerve fibres) was lower in the group with CFS. There were also some differences on the right side of the brain in the nerve fibres that connect the temporal to the frontal brain regions
