Neuropsychological problems are a distressing and frequent
component of the symptom complex associated with chronic
fatigue syndrome. Objective assessment of these difficulties

Results of the studies discussed in this paper suggest that
impaired information processing, rather than primary memory
dysfunction, may be at the root of the cognitive problems that
afflict so many patients with CFS.
