    There's a summary of the poster presented to the Organization for Human Brain Mapping Vancouver 2017 conference here:

    Disrupted default mode network dynamics in chronic fatigue syndrome. Submission number 3085.

    So this is just for the resting state.

    To me, it looks like there is an issue with the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC - the blue blob) as its connectivity with other parts of the brain at work in a resting state appears to be lower in people with CFS than in healthy controls.

    However, I'm sceptical of this functional MRI stuff.
