I think that Nijs and some others may be rather dodgy, going by some of the reports on PR: http://forums.phoenixrising.me/index.php?search/44695946/&q=nijs&o=date
CPET has shown the differences between groups is not apparent until the repeat session. HRV by finger sensor lacks the accuracy of chest straps when comparisons have been carried out using elite athletes, something that neither group meet criteria for and that brings up criteria used for selection of the CFS group. Had hoped for something better when Jo Nijs name was listed.
The results of this study are likely true -there is no major effect of HRV or cerebral blood flow post 'mild' exercise.
I am basing my opinion on other heart rate and blood flow studies that have been equivocal overall.
