    I would be really anxious to get involved in a test like this that will be studying the brain function of ME patients due to my level of brain dysfunction and severity of my SPECT scan. I believe I would be a good candidate.

    If anyone knows about any coming up I would love to know. Thank you.

    Dr. Baraniuk at Georgetown University was recruiting for a study using fMRI ,but I'm not sure if it is still recruiting though. I was suppose to make the trip last September, but I was derailed by my brothers degenerating condition. I'm waiting to see if they are still interested or if it has concluded.

    It is a pretty intense study with extensive blood work and fMRI's before and after a 2 day exercise test. I believe testing the spinal fluid is also involved as well.

    Thank you, August. I'm sorry to hear about your brother. We all here understand chronic disease too well so I sympathize.
