International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    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.

    Their publication was just released, according to their facebook page, but I can’t find the link to it.
