Traumatic Brain Injury

Mental fatigue is a common symptom following Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), or stroke. In the case of long-lasting mental fatigue, the mental fatigue could be one important factor that keeps people from returning to the full range of activities they pursued prior to their injury with work, studies and social activities. Mental fatigue is no illness, rather it represents a mental sequel probably due to disturbance of higher brain functions, either physical or psychological in origin. It is included in, and defined within the diagnoses Mild cognitive impairment (F06.7), Neurasthenia (F48.0) and Posttraumatic brain syndrome (F07.2). Mental fatigue must also be considered when exploring treatments after a traumatic brain injury or stroke. We have shown in this study that the MFS is linked to cognitive functioning and that depression and mental fatigue must be treated as separate constructs.
