    They did publish a graph on "Borg/%max HR reached" in the mediation paper.

    There's also the fitness data, employment data and 6 mwt data. I can see nothing on lactate levels.

    Think I´d prefer

    Non cogito, ergo non sunt
    (I don't think, therefore I am not) :p

    Should that not be interpreted as "I don't think, therefore they are not"?

    Which would be even better!

    I read that, "in the meditation paper."

    And I was not surprised.

    From the aforementioned "secondary" mediation analysis

    tl;dr: the PACE trial showed that 6mwd is not a valid test of fitness/physical function and changes of questionnaire answering behaviour after CBT/GET is not mediated by "physical reconditioning".

    The national resource centre for ME in Norway (leaning very heavily towards a biopsychosocial approach to ME) decided to invite Brurberg to talk about updated research on ME on an upcoming ME-seminar for physiotherapists. Sigh.. :(
