Structural, biochemical and functional indices of chemotherapy-induced cognitive deficits in breast cancer patients.

A subgroup of breast cancer patients is shown to have cognitive problems following chemotherapy. The nature and mechanisms underlying these cognitive deficits are yet unknown. By means of state-of-the-art MR imaging and collection of data on possible confounding factors, we aim to provide more insight into the specific influence of cytotoxic agents on brain functioning, its consequences and its underlying mechanisms.
