National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke offers a vast amount of information on brain and nervous system disorders listed from A to Z, including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Migraine, traumatic brain injury, epilepsy, cerebral hypoxia, and inflammatory myopathies. Definitions, treatments, prognosis, research, and additional links for each disorder are provided.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / Myalgic Encephalomyelitis
- Solve ME/CFS Initiative (SMCI), formerly the CFIDS association of America, this organization offers a panoply of resources as well as specific research programs intended for patients, researchers, and healthcare providers. Their website also features a free monthly webinar series that is open to the public.
- International Association for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (IACFS/ME) lists pertinent resources for patients, doctors, and researchers.
- Dr. Leonard Jason, of DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois. Dr. Jason has published over 150 articles on CFS, including epidemiology (Jason et al., 1997; Jason, Richman, et al., 1999), psychosocial interventions (Jason et al., 2009), recovery characteristics of patients with CFS (Camacho & Jason, 1998), clinically oriented professional volumes on CFS (Friedberg & Jason, 1998; Taylor, Friedberg, & Jason, 2001), and a science-based handbook (Jason, Fennell, & Taylor, 2003). He was the recipient of the 2015 American Psychological Association award for distinguished professional contributions to applied research.
- Institute for Neuro-Immune Medicine at Nova Southeastern University, Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Dr. Mary Fletcher and the ME/CFS research team at the Institute for Neuroimmune Medicine at Nova Southeastern University is principle investigator grant ($1.9 million) from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke at the NIH to study neuroinflammatory biomarkers in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. This page features a video of Dr. Nancy Klimas, a leading researcher and clinician focusing on CFS and Gulf War-Syndrome, elaborating on the concept of neuro-immune medicine.
Quantitative EEG Resources for Researchers and Clinicians
- Dr. Robert Thatcher, Applied Neuroscience, Inc. direct link to an extensive list of scientific articles pertaining to the application of qEEG and 3-dimensional source imaging (LORETA) to brain disorders.
- Low Resolution Electromagnetic Tomography (LORETA) Key-Institute for Brain-Mind Research, provides links to freely downloadable LORETA software and scientific papers on the latest advancements in both standardized and exact LORETA 3-dimensional EEG source imagining inverse methods (Pascual-Marqui et al., 1994, 2002, 2011, 2014).
