Initial Study on Cancer-Related Cognitive Dysfunction With the Implementation of QEEG

Abstract

Chemotherapy is one of the most common treatments used in cancer therapy despite its serious side effects, which remain a huge concern. To the most common side effects (apart from weight and hair loss) include memory and concentration problems as well as changes in taste. This paper presents a very preliminary study (with only one elderly female subject participating) focusing on cognitive dysfunction after chemotherapy in breast cancer. This phenomenon, called Cancer-Related Cognitive Dysfunction (CRCD), is a frequent occurrence. The obtained results prove the impact of chemotherapy on the participant’s ability to concentrate. The QEEG method and digital data analysis were used as the measurement methods.
