    Nothing that exciting in this except that I think it would be interesting to see such outcome measures used in CFS.

    Gijs Bleijenberg has been a major figure in the promotion of CBT for CFS.

    Ta D.

    From the end of the abstract it sounds like they're saying similar testing has been done with CFS?

    I thought I'd add a link to a thread where a Bleijenberg paper showing that CBT intended to increase the amount of activity people did post-Cancer in order to improve fatigue only affected questionnaire scores, and not their objective measures of activity, just in case people thought things were any better there than with CFS:

    The impression I get is that they're ruling out one or two biological causes of "fatigue" so that they can dramatically declare that it must be psychosomatic, and CBT/GET must be the cure. The psychobabblers did much of the same thing in ME/CFS patients
