Rehabilitation Medicine

Description

The primary aim of this study is to explore the feasibility of using objective and subjective measures of fatigue, previously validated in other populations, in individuals who have sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI). A secondary aim of the study is to explore whether certain neuropsychological measures previously found to be related to cognitive fatigue (CF) in non-TBI populations will be related to CF in individuals who have sustained a TBI. An additional aim is to explore the relationship between objective and subjective measures of cognitive fatigue and related psychological variables. The final aim of the study is to explore characteristics of individuals who demonstrate a fatigue effect.
