Abstract: Chemotherapy-associated cognitive impairment is a pertinent treatment-related adverse effect that negatively impacts patients' quality of life and daily functioning. However, there are currently no effective management strategies available to prevent, treat and/or alleviate this adverse cognitive effect. The lack of understanding of the clinical presentations and the biological mechanisms causing chemotherapy-associated cognitive impairment has been a major encumbrance to the successful development of effective interventions. Against this backdrop, this thesis aims to characterize the clinical presentations and to obtain mechanistic insights into the adverse cognitive outcome consequential to chemotherapy.
