Neuropsychological deficits in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS): artifact or reality?

Source: JNNSP 1996 May;60(5):474-7

MCM: Summarizes recent literature. The most consistent findings
have been slower reaction times, poorer performance on complex
attentional and memory tasks, and, less consistently, a
slowness in acquiring new information. Slowing of information
processing may acocunt for these positive findings. Pts
consistently have higher self-ratings of cognitive
impairment… Future studies should focus on the role of the
patient's personal illness beliefs in contributiung to their
subjective reports of cognitive difficulty…
