The early days of chronic fatigue syndrome research; Clues to functional weakness mechanism from the nature of onset
29 Dec, 11 | by BMJ Group
In this first podcast of 2012 editor Matthew Kiernan talks about JNNP’s new impact commentaries - a series which will explore influential papers from the journal. A paper by Simon Wessely (King’s College London) comparing postviral fatigue with that of neuromuscular and affective disorders is the first covered, and he and Matthew discuss this seminal research.
Also, Jon Stone (University of Edinburgh) explains what his investigation into the nature of functional weakness onset indicates about the mechanism of the condition.
