TLDR
An overview of what is perception of effort in Exercise Science is provided and some brief guidelines for its measurement, and some perspectives for future research are offered.
A study on the measurement of depressive symptoms: frequency versus intensity
TLDR
The aim is to improve the instruments that are used to detect and assist in the diagnosis of depression and to provide real-time information about the patient’s mental health.
Evidence for Strong Immediate Well-being Effects of Choral Singing - With More Enjoyment for Women than for Men
Evidence for strong immediate well-being effects of choral singing : With more enjoyment for women than for men
Cognitive influences on perceived phonatory exertion using the Borg CR10
TLDR
Perceptions of vocal effort appear to mirror ratings of mental effort during tasks for which vocal activity is relatively stable but cognitive demands fluctuate, and additional analyses reveal that mental effort might drive this relationship.
An index for breathlessness and leg fatigue
TLDR
In healthy subjects, leg fatigue is the most common cause for discontinuing an incremental exercise test, and the growth functions for breathlessness and leg fatigue during work are, however, almost parallel.
Examining physical training versus physical and mental training programmes in Swimrun semi-professional athletes: A randomised, controlled, trial
TLDR
This research is the first to demonstrate that mental imagery used in combination with motivational self-talk can reduce the perceived exertion and improve the flow state in Swimrun athletes during their endurance performance.
Attentional focus strategies used by regular exercisers and their relationship with perceived exertion, enjoyment, and satisfaction
Individuals can focus their attention in different ways during exercise and different foci may influence psychological states experienced. The present study examined the distribution of attentional

TLDR
Theoretical and empirical reasons give strong support for the use of Borg's general category (C)-ratio (R) scale, the CR10 scale, for diagnostic purposes and for treatments of both sick and healthy people and work situations.
Development of the Color Scale of Perceived Exertion: Preliminary Validation
TLDR
A Color Scale of Perceived Exertion (RPE-color scale) was developed and assessed its concurrent and construct validity in adult women and significantly associated with heart rate and oxygen consumption, having strong correlations with the RPE-Borg scale.
Neuromuscular and perceptual responses to moderate-intensity incline, level and decline treadmill exercise
TLDR
At the same moderate intensity, decline exercise induced a greater level of muscle fatigue associated with a higher perceived effort and muscle pain than incline and level exercise.

Influence of Local and Central Factors in Dominating Rated Perceived Exertion during Physical Work

TLDR
A model has been introduced to evaluate differentiated ratings of perceived exertion (local and central) in comparison to the over-all measure to help aid in a better understanding of the mechanisms by which the subjective perception of exertion is determined during different types of physical work.
The increase of perceived exertion, aches and pain in the legs, heart rate and blood lactate during exercise on a bicycle ergometer
TLDR
The data support the idea that a combination of heart rate and blood lactate is a better predictor of perceived exertion and feelings of aches and pain in the legs, than is each of the single physiological variables taken alone.
The influence of physical training and other factors on the subjective rating of perceived exertion.
TLDR
RPE was higher for a given level of oxygen uptake during arm work than during leg work, as well as during bicycling compared to running or swimming, and a better correlation was found in these experiments between RPE and blood lactate concentration.
Ratings of perceived exertion in braille: validity and reliability in production mode
TLDR
Blind participants were successful in using a braille RPE scale to differentiate exercise intensity on a cycle ergometer, with similar effect to the visual analogue scale recommended for use in healthy sighted people.

TLDR
The research reviewed in this paper supports the conclusion that effort sense is best conceptualized as a complex psychobiological construct as originally proposed by Borg three decades ago.
A comparison of AME and CR100 for scaling perceived exertion.
TLDR
In this article, the Category (C)-Ratio (R) (CR) scaling methodology is presented together with a new CR scale: the CR100 scale, and it is shown that CR100 could make the predicted differentiation between sexes, whereas AME could not.
