Abstract

Neuropsychological problems are a distressing and frequent component of the symptom complex associated with chronic fatigue syndrome. Objective assessment of these difficulties is essential to understanding the nature of this illness. 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.
