The mental stressor used was engineering graduate school class lectures the physical stressor was softball games played under hot, humid atmospheric conditions. The photograph parameter used to indicate fatigue was the fingertips corona diameter. A Wilcoxon signed rank test at the 0.99 level of significance determined statistically significant corona diameter changes did occur in both cases. The diameter significantly increased after applying the physical stressor and decreased after applying the mental stressor. Author
