Abstract

Increasing survival rates and persistent cognitive complaints from brain tumor patients have led to the recognition that cognitive impairment from cancer or cancer-related treatment is a significant problem for survivors. Definitions, incidence rates, and potential etiologies are being researched, along with the neurotoxic effects from chemotherapy and radiation in relation to brain functioning. Both diagnostic techniques and neurocognitive profiling of cancer patients will be presented. Lastly, evidence-based coping strategies and cognitive interventions will be described for those experiencing cognitive deficits following cancer treatment.
