Brain tumors are the main cause of cancer-related death in children. These tumors and related treatments, in particular radiotherapy and high dose chemotherapy, are often associated with cognitive deficits that can cause mood and behavioral impairments. The aim of this study was to characterize cognitive impairments in children with brain tumors with the aim of creating a specific software for cognitive training to improve life expectancy and quality.
