Combating Chemobrain: It’s Not Just in Your Head

Following chemotherapy, cancer survivors often find it more challenging to learn new tasks, remember words or do things as efficiently or quickly as they once did.

Along with a colleague from the University of Pittsburgh, IU Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center researcher Brenna McDonald, PsyD, recently received a $3 million grant from the National Cancer Institute to study this frustrating phenomenon.

In this Simon Says Expert Series session, Dr. McDonald discusses how her research seeks to help survivors identify their challenges and apply strategies to mitigate memory problems.
