Chemo brain study

Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy have long reported difficulties with memory and cognition throughout the treatment process, and following their recovery. But UBC researchers investigating “Chemo Brain” are making progress toward unraveling the mystery of this condition – and are finding that exercise may be helpful.
“We haven’t looked at the results yet; we don’t like to do that until the study is done. But certainly people are reporting that they feel like the exercise is helping them improve their cognitive function,” said UBC professor and lead researcher Kristen Campbell.
Campbell and her team are also hoping to better understand the causes of “chemo brain.” Thus far, no research into the disorder has managed to determine its source with certainty.
