How does post-brain injury fatigue relate to a person’s view of his or her own disability? Researchers studied adults with brain injury and found that fatigue played an important role in how a person perceived the extent of their disability. Individuals with TBI identified fatigue as even more important than issues like severity of injury, history of depression, and executive functions in assessing their own level of disability.
