    Informatics Inference of Exercise-Induced Modulation of Brain Pathways Based on Cerebrospinal Fluid Micro-RNAs in ME/CFS (Narayan et al. 2020)

    Here's a recent study that looked at microRNA's in the Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF), before and after an exercise challenge, from James Baraniuk's team: Informatics Inference of Exercise-Induced Modulation of Brain Pathways Based on Cerebrospinal Fluid Micro-RNAs in ME/CFS (Narayan et al. 2020)...

    A systematic review of neurological impairments in myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome using neuroimaging techniques

    This is a pretty well done and thorough review paper, makes for a good reference to find papers you might've read long ago on particular neuroimaging studies of ME. While most, if not all, the neuroimaging studies in ME had fairly small sample sizes (due to abysmal ME funding!) and most used...

    Utility of testing cerebrospinal fluid for pathogens, etc?

    Is there any use in getting a spinal tap to have spinal fluid tested to help determine root cause of illness. I have heard/read of different labs being able to test for things like Lyme, MS, glucose, protein, cell count, viruses, bacteria, fungus, parasites, all in spinal fluid. I have still be...
