Nerve Exhaustion


    IN introducing the subject of nerve exhaustion, Sir Maurice Craig makes it evident that he is writing for the general practitioner rather than for the student of psychology. He particularly emphasises the importance of the prevention of nerve exhaustion, which is defined as “a state in which there is undue physical, nervous, or mental fatigue.” The author considers that the essential factor leading to such a state is “hypersensitivity,” which may be physical or psychical, and the recognition of which may enable one to prevent the onset of nerve exhaustion.
