MRI study finds grey and white matter volumetric changes

Puri et al. of Hammersmith Hospital (U.K.) evaluated 26 CFS patients and 26 matched conbrain-voxelstrols and concluded, “These data support the hypothesis that significant neuroanatomical changes occur in CFS, and are consistent with the complaint of impaired memory that is common in this illness; they also suggest that subtle abnormalities in visual processing, and discrepancies between intended actions and consequent movements, may occur in CFS.” (British Journal of Radiology, Nov. 29, 2011)
