FATIGUE - is a temporary loss of physical and/or mental performance.

• Mental fatigue mainly results from difficult and complex pressure. Inhibition
processes amongst others affect the impairment of information acceptance,
a more slow information transfer as well as the information handling.

• Physical (corporal) fatigue is the diminished power of one or more muscles in

comparison to the expectable power otherwise depending on the individual
physical performance. In particular this results from local pressure and bad
training condition.
