Lumosity Shown To Help Combat Chemo-Fog

5-21-2013 10-58-25 PM

A recent study published in the journal Clinical Breast Cancer suggests that the use of computer-guided brain training may help reverse the cognitive impairment known as “chemo-fog” that is sometimes caused by repeated chemotherapy.

The study measured cognitive improvement in a group who used the brain-training program Lumosity for 12 weeks. At the end of the 12 weeks, the patients were more cognitively flexible, verbally fluent, and were faster-thinking than patients who were not included in the training program.

The clinical value of cognitive training programs itself is a highly debated topic. Studies attempting to legitimize the process have struggled to demonstrate lasting general effects.
