Hi Currer, I would find it helpful if you could pop some dates next to these extracts please. Thanks. It is perhaps unfortunate that problems with memory, concentration, word finding, "that term where you can't select things and put them in their right hole", etc. do indeed attract this term Neuropsychiatric, perhaps. Useful to remember that Alzheimer's is also one of those diseases that do and there was a study some time back - small sample size of course - that compared people with ME and those with Alzheimer's if I recall correctly. I believe that 'we' came out as comparable to mild/moderate to Alzheimer's. As the following from that great resource of credence, Wikipedia, demonstrates, this discipline preceeded Neurology and Psychiatry - as an interesting aside - and there are - as you know - many calls for the two to become one, once more. Indeed this has I understand pretty much occurred in all but name - even in name - in some parts of the Western World including the US of A. Edit: Ah ok have read Red's post now. Duplicate posting of Wiki definition. Never 'mind'.
