    Default Nervous System Abnormalities Tied to Cognitive Problems in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

    Cort Johnson
    May 24, 2013


    These Australian researchers, overseen by Dr. Vollmer-Conna, begin their quest for the source of the cognitive difficulties in chronic fatigue syndrome by turning things on their ‘head’ (pun intended) a bit.

    PLoS One. 2012;7(11):e49518. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0049518. Epub 2012 Nov 14.Reduced cardiac vagal modulation impacts on cognitive performance in chronic fatigue syndrome. Beaumont A, Burton AR, Lemon J, Bennett BK, Lloyd A, Vollmer-Conna U.

    They noted that each of the cognitive abnormalities in ME/CFS appears to be fairly mild but taken together there are enough of them to perhaps turn them into something significant.

    Mr. Johnson goes on to state:
    " Heart rate variability (HRV) tests in ME/CFS have indicated that the fight or flight side of the ANS (the sympathetic nervous system) is going gangbusters while the rest and digest side (the parasympathetic nervous system) is going to sleep. That hyper-vigilant state – that constant feeling of ‘being in danger’ – results in reduced activity of pre-frontal cortex - which is involved in planning and organization - and ‘vagal control’ – which tells the body to ‘rest and digest’."
