    They conclude that the right superior longitudinal fasciculus (SFL) appears to be abnormal.

    Montoya et al. previously reported that the "right anterior arcuate fractional anisotropy may serve as a biomarker for CFS".

    Trying to understand whether there was a connection, I googled, and the literature that came up says
    Source https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/neuroscience/superior-longitudinal-fasciculus

    Another article also says

    http://www.oxfordscholarship.com/vi...4233.001.0001/acprof-9780195104233-chapter-13

    To me this sounds like the Japanese and the Stanfordians have found abnormalities in the same general area of the brain.
