London Area ME/CFS Cognitive Function Study Recruiting Now

Invitation to take part in a cognitive functioning study – to adults in the London area

By Tony Britton, Sep 28, 2011

The Chronic Illness Research Team (CIRT),  based at the University of East London, is conducting a study into cognitive functioning in adults with ME/CFS.

Cognitive functions include memory, decision-making and planning. Individuals who suffer with chronic illnesses can experience greater difficulties in these areas such as memory lapses and concentration problems. To gain a greater insight into how ME/CFS can affect these cognitive processes, the Chronic Illness Research Team in conjunction with the University of East London is currently looking for individuals who have been diagnosed with ME/CFS to participate.

The purpose of the study is to help identify any differences in cognitive functions, such as working memory and decision-making, between individuals [who have] a diagnosis of ME/CFS and those who do not.

The long-term aim of the study is to gain a greater insight into the difficulties an individual may experience due to ME/CFS which will lead to improving the quality of individuals’ lives through enhanced medical and therapeutic interventions.

Are you interested in taking part in the study?

To participate you must:
• Be between the ages of 18 and 50
• Be diagnosed with ME/CFS by a qualified medical practitioner for at least 1 year
• Have English as your first language
• Reside within the London M25 area.

What to expect if you do take part:
A small friendly team, composed of 1 woman and 1 man, will arrange to visit you, either in your home, at the University of East London, or at another convenient and safe location to conduct some tests. Further details will be sent by post and we will ask you to complete some questionnaires. You may withdraw from the study at any time.

Contacts: If you are interested in taking part in this study, or would like some additional information, we can be contacted by email on CIRT@uel.ac.uk, or  07588 514 364 (please leave a message).

Sincerely,
Chronic Illness Research Team
