Mental fatigue (MF) is a psychobiological state that impairs cognitive as well as physical performance in different settings. Recently, numerous studies have sought ways to counteract these negative efects of MF. An overview of the explored countermeasures for MF is, however, lacking.
The objective of this review is to provide an overview of the diferent MF countermeasures currently explored in literature. Countermeasures were classifed by the timing of application (before, during or after the moment of MF) and type of intervention (behavioural, physiological and psychological).
