    Correlation doesn't mean the causation goes in the direction you'd like it to:bang-head:. Just how much "research" makes this fundamental mistake!

    For some reason this popped up on my Google scholar. Pretty ridiculous. "Sick people pay more attention to words to do with sickness".

    Oh do they.

    Do.

    They.

    It's a breakthrough. :rolleyes:

    Do people with cancer pay more attention to words like 'tumor' and 'malignancy'?

    Of course.

    It's a matter of paying attention of what matters to you. This isn't the same as depressive patients paying more attention to words that have negative connotations. Chalder et al consistently attempt to overlay ME with psychological precepts, and it's like they're not even thinking at all of how the study seems from any point of view other than their own.

    Is there an emoji for "snorts derisively"?

    Actually, I think this is a consistent effort really to convince themselves and their acolytes: an echo-chamber of "see, we're right!" "See, we're right!"

    I can't imagine that this sort of study is convincing to anybody who isn't already convinced. It's to solidify those people's narrative for themselves, not for us or even for other researchers: to justify their continued research / funding, and the way that they treat patients.
