Cancer survivors often comment on both memory and concentration problems after having had chemotherapy treatment. A group of researchers found that 40 minutes a day, 4 times a week for 15 weeks of online brain training resulted in a significant improvement of these cognitive symptoms. In addition to this a decrease in anxiety, depression, fatigue and stress was also noted. When these parameters were retested 6 months later it was seen that these survivors still retained the benefits of their brain training.
The brain training which this group undertook were similar to the exercises in some books found on our site such as The Brain Fitness Workout, Pocket Posh Brain Games and The Must Have 2016 Sudoku Puzzle Book.
