    It would do for anyone.

    The brain takes a lot of metabolic energy to work even at rest so any cognitive strain will effective exhaust the brain

    When you get to the stage of Understanding what you're doing, you wake up. Unfortunately this is such a scary state, that most people promptly put themselves back to sleep.

    don't worry - as long as you don't pass out and wake up a couple of hours later with a body next to you, everything is fine!

    Brain dead? The only thing in life that stops me from doing math is the need to eat, sleep and defecate. Math is simply the most amazing thing in the world, I really feel like I'm living when I'm solving math problems.

    If you don't love maths, you might as well give up. It's one of those things.

    It does for everyone regardless if you love maths or the it. I love maths, but at the end of 2 hours of having to study it, it makes my brain dead so much and I crave for a break.

    Mental energy is conserved once you're experienced enough. That said, I felt a bit drained after doing 6 hours of continuous maths yesterday (but uni is a better excuse than sixth form )
