Cognitive Rehabilitation for Breast Cancer Survivors
“Effects of Computer-Assisted Cognitive Rehabilitation Programs With Breast Cancer Survivors”
Potential study participants will be recruited at breast cancer survivor support groups. Informed consent will be obtained with a form approved by the TWU IRB and participants will complete 4 tests. Then participants will be randomly assigned to one of two computer-assisted cognitive programs. Participants will be sent by email, exercises specific to their assigned computer-assisted cognitive program from Happyneuron Pro (http://ie.scientificbraintrainingpro.eu/). Cognitive training on the computer entails 30 minutes a day, five times a week for one month. At the end of the study, the four pretests will be repeated, a satisfaction survey administered.
Behavioral - computer-assisted rehabilitation
Participant is presented with 10 exercises a day, 3 minutes each. When participant achieves 100% accuracy of the exercise, he/she gets a higher level of exercise. Levels of range from 1-9. Exercises are changed every week by researcher.
