It is long overdue for chemobrain to be recognizd as legitimate doctors! The next step is to help with alleviate these symptoms. An article in the NY Times on Aug 10 http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/11/health/11brod.html?pagewanted=1&_r=1 outlined some practical steps to take to help compensate for chemobrain. In addition to this, there was a study of a computer training memory program by Posit Science where I am employed as an in-house scientist. After training on this program for eight weeks, the women in the study reported improved cognitive symptoms and also improved health-related quality of life compared to a control group that was on a waitlist for the same amount of time. There are currently three other large studies being conducted using this software for people with chemobrain. We believe that reconnecting the brain with cognitive functions through brain fitness can really improve the lives of people with chemo brain and other brain-related conditions.
