Improving Cognitive Function After Cancer

Shelli Kesler

In this book written especially for cancer survivors, neuropsychologist and cognitive neuroscientist, Dr. Shelli Kesler, discusses the cognitive effects of cancer and cancer treatments, often referred to as chemobrain. She describes the possible causes of these cognitive difficulties based on the most recent research studies. Most importantly, she outlines a practical, evidence-based program that can potentially help improve memory, thinking and attention. This book is recommended for cancer survivors as well as clinicians, family members and friends who are interested in learning more about cancer-related cognitive effects.
