Mental fatigue or brain fatigue

Mental fatigue can be a disabling consequence of traumatic brain injury, stroke, infection or inflammation in the Central Nervous System (CNS). The condition is characterized by pronounced mental fatigue after moderate mental activity. Pronounced fatigue can appear very rapidly and, when it does, it is not possible for the affected person to continue the activity. Typical for this kind of fatigue is a profound, long recovery time to get one’s mental energy back. Attention cannot be maintained for more than short periods. Other common associated symptoms are: irritability, tearfulness, sound and light sensitivity as well as headaches.
