I thought this 2020 meta-analysis from Staines and Marshall-Gradisnik had already been posted, but I must have missed it...

Another literature review from Staines and Marshall-Gradisnik:
A systematic review of nutraceutical interventions for mitochondrial dysfunctions in ME/CFS (Maksoud et al., 2021)
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...
