Increased life expectancy in patients with brain tumours has led to a greater risk of cognitive deficits, particularly during disease-free periods. Here, we review the empirical studies that have been done to treat or to prevent cognitive impairment in patients with brain tumours. Both pharmacological interventions and cognitive rehabilitation programmes have been used. Although both types of study have reported some successes, these are often difficult to interpret owing to limitations in the… CONTINUE READING
