Information shared at NCNED’s Facebook Page.

NCNED is inviting patients formally diagnosed with ME/CFS and healthy controls (aged between 18 to 65 years old) to participate in continuing research using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain.
Interested participants will be asked to undergo MRI scanning with an advanced ultra-high field scanner (7 Tesla) for 60 minutes, and on the same day undergo a brief electroencephalogram (EEG) test for 15 minutes.
The MRI Scanner is located at UQ, St Lucia so participants need to be able to travel to Brisbane to complete the scan.
In addition to this, participants will:
• Complete 7 questionnaires for evaluation of fatigue symptoms, life quality, etc.
• Wear a blood pressure cuff on their arm for 24 hours.
• Wear an activity monitor on their wrist for seven days to record, physical activity, heartrate and sleep/wake information.
If you are interested in being part of the study or would like more information, please contact NCNED on 07 56789283 or email
