Title - Your Brain on Exercise Versus Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Exertion leads to fatigue that is relieved by sleep. However, in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Gulf War Illness, exercise leads to severe prolonged debilitating exhaustion, cognitive dysfunction and pain. Brain mechanisms were examined by comparing magnetic resonance imaging, autonomic and cerebrospinal fluid data from before and after submaximal bicycle stress tests. The outcomes provide new insights into disease pathology, diagnosis and potential therapies.
Professor James Baraniuk, MD, is a Professor with Tenure in the Department of Medicine at Georgetown University and the Director of the Chronic Pain and Fatigue Research Center, located within the Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, D.C. The Chronic Pain and Fatigue Research Center does research on chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), Gulf War Illness (GWI) and other pain conditions, particularly in the areas of Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), biomarker discovery through proteomic, metabolomic, and transcriptomic assays in blood and cerebrospinal fluid, autonomic testing and heart rate variability (HRV) and statistical analyses using machine learning, hierarchical clustering, and other data mining methods.
