In this review, fatigue is described as a conscious sensation rather than a physiological occurrence. We suggest that the sensation of fatigue is the conscious awareness of changes in subconscious homeostatic control systems, and is derived from a temporal difference between subconscious representations of these homeostatic control systems in neural networks that are induced by changes in the level of activity. These mismatches are perceived by consciousness-producing structures in the brain as… Expand
The neural basis of the sense of fatigue
Evidence suggests that the genesis and regulation of the sense of exertional fatigue is rooted within the same neural networks responsible for processing affective responses. One key mechanismExpand
Fatigue is a Brain-Derived Emotion that Regulates the Exercise Behavior to Ensure the Protection of Whole Body Homeostasis
TLDR
The model predicts that attempts to understand fatigue and to explain superior human athletic performance purely on the basis of the body’s known physiological and metabolic responses to exercise must fail since subconscious and conscious mental decisions made by winners and losers are the ultimate determinants of both fatigue and athletic performance. Expand
The neural correlates of fatigue: an exploratory imaginal fatigue provocation study in chronic fatigue syndrome
TLDR
The results may suggest that, in CFS patients, the provocation of fatigue is associated with exaggerated emotional responses that patients may have difficulty suppressing. Expand
Central fatigue and neurotransmitters, can thermoregulation be manipulated?
TLDR
Dopaminergic reuptake inhibition appears to counteract hyperthermia‐induced fatigue in 30 °C, while noradrenergic neurotransmission shows negative effects on performance in both normal and high temperature, and serotonergic manipulations did not lead to significant changes in performance. Expand
Is part of the mystery surrounding fatigue complicated by context?
TLDR
As sports scientists begin to take on a holistic approach to understanding fatigue, it seems necessary that the 'context' should be highlighted when using the term 'fatigue' and questioning the mystery behind it. Expand
Neural mechanisms of mental fatigue
TLDR
A new conceptual model is proposed: the dual regulation system of mental fatigue, which contributes to the understanding of the neural mechanisms ofmental fatigue and the regulatory mechanisms of cognitive task performance in the presence of mentalfatigue. Expand
Cortical Substrate of Supraspinal Fatigue following Exhaustive Aerobic Exercise Localizes to a Large Cluster in the Anterior Premotor Cortex
TLDR
Findings here show that activity in the ipsilateral aPMv and the adjacent areas in the premotor cortex correlates with both localized fatigue (fatigue specific hand grip contraction), and generalized full body exhaustive fatigue. Expand
Placebo‐induced decrease in fatigue: evidence for a central action on the preparatory phase of movement
TLDR
This placebo‐induced modulation of the readiness potential suggests that placebos reduce fatigue by acting centrally during the anticipatory phase of movement, thus emphasizing the important role of the central nervous system in the generation of fatigue. Expand
Alterations in Central Fatigue by Pharmacological Manipulations of Neurotransmitters in Normal and High Ambient Temperature
TLDR
Evidence from different studies suggests that it is very unlikely that one neurotransmitter system is responsible for the appearance of central fatigue, with the most important role possibly being for the catecholamines dopamine and noradrenaline. Expand
Effect of a fatiguing protocol on motor imagery accuracy
TLDR
Investigation of the influence of muscle fatigue on athletes’ ability to perform motor imagery suggests that muscle fatigue, unlike fatigue induced by prolonged exercise, does not elicit mental fatigue and therefore does not alter motor imagery accuracy. Expand

Postexercise depression of motor evoked potentials: a measure of central nervous system fatigue
TLDR
In six normal volunteers, including four of the investigators, the amplitudes of motor evoked potentials elicited by transcranial magnetic stimulation were transiently decreased after exercise, indicating fatigue of motor pathways in the central nervous system. Expand
Neurobiology of muscle fatigue.
TLDR
This work proposes four themes that provide a basis for the systematic evaluation of the neural and neuromuscular fatigue mechanisms and suggests a number of experiments to advance the understanding of the neurobiology of muscle fatigue. Expand
Neural correlates of consciousness in humans
TLDR
Functional neuroimaging in humans and electrophysiology in awake mokeys indicate that there are important differences between striate and extrastriate visual cortex in how well neural activity correlates with consciousness. Expand

Hypnotic manipulation of effort sense during dynamic exercise: cardiovascular responses and brain activation.
TLDR
Findings show that an increase in effort sense during constant-load exercise can activate both insular and thalamic regions and elevate cardiovascular responses but that decreases in effortsense do not reduce cardiovascular responses below the level required to sustain metabolic needs. Expand
Consciousness and the brainstem
TLDR
A theoretical framework and a set of hypotheses aimed at accounting for consciousness in neurobiological terms are summarized and the functional neuroanatomy of nuclei in the brainstem reticular formation is discussed because they constitute the basic set of somato-sensing structures necessary for core consciousness and its core self to emerge.

TLDR
A critical review of the most relevant perceived exertion literature in terms of relevant modifying variables such as exercise intensity, exercise duration, exercise modality, and steady-state vs progressive exercise is provided. Expand
Perceived exertion is associated with an altered brain activity during exercise with progressive hyperthermia.
TLDR
The linear correlation among core temperature, EEG frequency index, and RPE indicates that alterations in cerebral activity may be associated with the hyperthermia-induced development of fatigue during prolonged exercise in hot environments. Expand
Anger in healthy men: a PET study using script-driven imagery
TLDR
It is suggested that the subjective experience of anger is associated with rCBF increases in anterior paralimbic regions of the brain, and this study examined the mediating functional neuroanatomy of anger in eight healthy men. Expand

TLDR
Using both static and dynamic contractions as models, data have been obtained that support either feedforward or feedback mechanisms and it is suggested that experimental circumstances have much to do with isolate one part of a system that probably contains feedforward and feedback elements. Expand
