Chemo Brain

Chemo brain is a common term used by cancer survivors to describe thinking and memory problems that can occur after cancer treatment. Chemo brain can also be called chemo fog, chemotherapy-related cognitive impairment or cognitive dysfunction.

NeurOptimal brain training helps the individual’s brain recover from the overwhelming effect of medicines  in the person’s body.  Hear what Jean has to say about her own experience.  She presented research on this at the 2014 NeurOptimal Research Conference in Palm Springs and it is important work that she is offering as well as personal insight into the devastating experience of not being able to function well after cancer treatment.
