Basal ganglia are a set of structures in the brain regulated by dopamine that play a role in action selection, voluntary movements and executive function, as well as perception of effort.

A small study of CFS patients found increased choline in the basal ganglia.[1] Increased choline can be a sign of immune activation or increased cell membrane turnover.
