Objective To study the function of neurotransmitters and brain and to explore the mechanism of chronic brain fatigue. Methods fatigue group: 200 chronic brain fag sufferers, control group: 120 common people; compare the power and relative power of nerve, index of cerebral function by EFG. Results (1) All nerve power of fatigue group are significantly lower than the control group (P < 0.01); (2) the relative power of GABA, Glu, and NE of fatigue group are significantly lower than the control group (P < 0.05), there are no significant difference in other relative power between two groups; (3) fatigue group’s total power and index of blood vessel systolic or diastolic are significantly lower than the control group (P < 0.01), the exercise index is also significantly lower than the control group (P < 0.05), but the entropy is significantly higher than the control group (P < 0.01). Conclusion There are significant differences in power of all neurotransmitters, parts of relative power, and index of brain function between the two groups, which suggests that change of these indices may be the cause of chronic brain fag.
