Neurocognitive functioning in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS )

Although substantial research has been conducted on chronic fatigue

syndrome (CFS) over the past decade, the syndrome remains

poorly understood. The most recent case definition describes

CFS as being characterized both by disabling fatigue and by

subjective reports of difficulty with concentration and

“short-term” memory. However, research into the neurocognitive

and psychological functioning of individuals with CFS has

provided mixed objective results. The current paper reviews

studies that have examined the neurocognitive and/or

psychological functioning of individuals with CFS. Changes in

research design and instruments employed to study individuals

with CFS are suggested.
