This study was designed to provide an estimate of the

prevalence of neuropsychological impairment in chronic fatigue

syndrome (CFS), to evaluate the concordance between impairment

found on standardized tests and self-reported

neuropsychological problems, and to study the relationship

between neuropsychological functioning and fatigue severity

and psychological processes. We adopted an individual approach

to determine neuropsychological impairment as contrasted with

the group- comparisons approach used in previous studies.

Also, correction for premorbid functioning and confounders was

done on an individual basis. The results show that a minority

of participants were impaired in neuropsychological

functioning. There was no relationship between

neuropsychological impairment on standardized tests and

self-reported memory and concentration problems.

Neuropsychological functioning was not related to fatigue or

depression. Slowed speed of information processing and motor

speed were related to low levels of physical activity.
