High-intensity interval training to improve cognitive function in breast cancer survivors undergoing chemotherapy.

Research Type: Cancer Survivors

Project Description

“Chemo brain” is a term used for the thinking and memory problems experienced by many people during and sometimes after chemotherapy. This research will address whether exercise can improve brain function. Participants will follow a 16-week aerobic exercise program designed for breast cancer survivors. The researchers will assess whether this exercise program can significantly reduce the cognitive problems associated with chemotherapy compared to a control group who does not follow the exercise program.
