J Neurol. 2018 Mar;265(3):607-617 Authors: Fiene M, Rufener KS, Kuehne M, Matzke M, Heinze HJ, Zaehle T Abstract Fatigue is one of the most common and debilitating symptoms affecting patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). Sustained cognitive effort induces cognitive fatigue, operationalized as subjective exhaustion and fatigue-related objective alertness decrements with time-on-task. During prolonged cognitive testing, MS patients show increased simple reaction times (RT) accompanied by lower amplitudes and prolonged latencies of the P300 event-related potential. Previous studies suggested a major role of ... read more
