A Study Of Post-TBI Fatigue

Abstract:
Fatigue is associated with reduced participation in activities, reduced quality of life, health problems, and cognitive impairments in medical populations and individuals with TBI. However, little research has focused on Post-TBI Fatigue. This project will address this issue. The study is a three-year project designed to develop a betterl understanding of Post-TBI Fatigue and its correlates. Self-report data are collected from individuals with TBI and persons with no disability regarding fatigue and related (or hypothetically related) phenomena such as depression, pain, sleep problems, health problems, level of participation in activities, quality of life, and injury variables. In order to assess the nature of and measure the impact of fatigue more objectively, performance on computer-administered, serial neuropsychological batteries (CANTAB) will be compared between individuals with TBI and persons with no disability.
