    Project Title: Predictors of subjective fatigue in three samples: chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis and multiple sclerosis patients and university student controls Investigators: Rhonda Brown, PhD.; Einar B. Thorsteinsson, PhD., University of New England, Australia.

    The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between fatigue, stress, anxiety, depression, viral infection symptoms, sleep disturbance, and a number of specific stressors, unhealthy behaviours, psychosocial factors, and cognitions. Fatigue often has a physiological basis (e.g. viral infection), but previous research has shown that fatigue also has psychological aspects.

    This research is intended to help us better understand the way in which psychological factors impact on fatigue over a period of time. Participants will be asked to complete set of questionnaires three times (i.e., now, 6 months from now, and then 12 months from now).
