My research currently aims to investigate the biochemical change of the brain in chronic fatigue syndrome and bipolar disorder under the supervision of Professor Phil Cowen.
Chronic fatigue syndrome can cause persistent fatigue and cannot be relieved by rest or sleep. The knowledge of the underlying pathophysiology is limited. By utilizing magnetic resonance spectroscopy, we aim to analyze the biochemical changes of certain brain regions in vivo. This non-invasive investigation can not only improve current understanding of chronic fatigue syndrome but also provide insight into potential biomarkers for the clinical diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome.
