    OK I I'd suggested the last blog was the last in the series but I've been keeping this under my hat.

    Part I suggested that ME/CFS patients, if tested, might have a deficit in sensory gating (the brain's ability to efficiently process sensory information to discriminate between vital and trivial input).

    Was I right?

    I also suggested that ME/CFS might comprise 'sub-groups' of patients similar to ADHD which includes the hyperactive, inattentive and mixed types.

    Is there any evidence for this?

    Part V focuses on a large but largely under-reported Japanese study that investigated information processing, autonomic function and higher level brain function in childhood 'CFS' with pretty shocking results.
