About the Authors
  • This book is a unique resource on the influence cancer and cancer treatments have on cognition. The majority of cancer patients on active treatment experience cognitive impairments often referred to as ‘chemobrain’ or ‘chemofog’. In addition, patients with primary or metastatic tumors of the brain often experience direct neurologic symptoms. This book helps health care professionals working with cancer patients who experience cognitive changes and provides practical information to help improve care by reviewing and describing brain-behavior relationships; research-based evidence on cognitive changes that occur with various cancers and cancer treatments; assessment techniques, including neurocognitive assessment and neuroimaging techniques; and intervention strategies for affected patients. In short, it will explain how to identify, assess and treat these conditions.

    • Details the changes in mental function that cancer patients suffer from
    • Provides practical guidance on the treatment of patients with 'chemobrain' or 'chemofog'
    • Accessible to the wide range of health care professionals and researchers involved in this area

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The organization of the chapters is well done and includes helpful figures, such as MRI slides of tumors to help visualize neuroanatomical localization. Summaries end each chapter and the references are very current...Although the neuropsychology of cancer is in its infancy, this book is an indispensable part of a well rounded ibrary on the topic. Readers will find information about assessment batteries, neuropsychological findings, and rehabilitation for the variety of cancer types and treatments they are most likely to encounter."
