New York, NY – July 15, 2013 – On July 12, Voices Against Brain Cancer, an organization dedicated to brain cancer research and advocacy, commends Shelli Kesler, a Stanford University clinical neuropsychologist, and her colleagues for using brain-training software to help lift the mental fog caused by cancer treatment.
According to a July 2nd, 2013 Medcitynews.com article entitled “Brain-training software may help lift ‘chemo fog’ cause by cancer treatment,” “Chemo fog” is a mental fuzziness induced by repeated cancer treatment. Researchers say cognitive brain exercises can improve brain function and ease the effects of the recurring chemotherapy.
Researchers went on to say that “those who used a brain-training program for 12 weeks were more cognitively flexible, more verbally fluent, and faster-thinking than survivors who didn’t train.”
