Abnormal neurovascular coupling
This article is a stub. Please help improve this page if you can.
Neurovascular coupling (NVC) refers to the "regulation of cerebral blood flow to match brain activity, which is critically important for normal brain function".Abnormal neurovascular coupling is a hypothesis being investigated to find out if it is underpinning cause of chronic fatigue syndrome. In 2019, Dr Zack Shan was awarded a grant to research neurovascular coupling in CFS.
Theory[edit | edit source]
According to Stewart et al. (2012) the cerebral perfusion may be contributing to the brain fog (neurocognitive dysfunction) found in patients with CFS may POTS.
