Training Attention and Memory after Bypass Surgery

“Brain Train­ing” May Lessen Cog­ni­tive Impair­ments Asso­ci­ated with Coro­nary Bypass Surgery (press release):

This study demon­strated that patients suf­fer­ing from cog­ni­tive deficits after coro­nary bypass surgery could greatly ben­e­fit from cog­ni­tive train­ing that tar­gets both atten­tion and memory—the cog­ni­tive func­tions most affected after this type of operation…What’s more, ben­e­fits from the train­ing are main­tained over time…the devel­op­ment of cog­ni­tive reha­bil­i­ta­tion tools would be highly ben­e­fi­cial for patients who undergo coro­nary bypass surgery as a way to speed up their recov­ery and improve their qual­ity of life.”
