Description of the problem
 
Cancer survivors first raised awareness that some patients experienced problems with their memory and/or concentration during and after chemotherapy. Also, complaints of difficulty with multitasking after undergoing chemotherapy are frequently reported by patients. For most patients the deficits appear subtle and often improve after ceasing treatment; however, for a subset of people the symptoms are sustained and have a significant impact on their quality of life and ability to function in their everyday activities.
