Brain training shown to help breast cancer related memory loss and mental slowness

Great news for breast cancer patients/survivors who have experienced mental slowness, memory loss or a mental "fog."

A new study out of Indiana University has found that brain training improves processing speed and memory performance.

For memory training, participants learned techniques to remember word lists, text and sequences.

At least one of the two programs used computer programs, so I can only imagine how one-on-one brain training (with a cognitive skills trainer) would help! 

This particular study followed 82 breast cancer survivors who had mental slowness and poor memory after undergoing chemo.

Here's the study:
