Neuro-Cognitive outcome in children with Leukemia and Lymphoma

Dr. Spiegler

Dr. Spiegler’s research activities are related to the neuropsychological late effects of treatment for childhood cancer, primarily brain tumours and leukemia. In collaboration with colleagues in psychology and oncology, she has studied the effects of cranial radiation and chemotherapy on cognitive development. Future studies will determine whether progressively lower doses of cranial radiation in the treatment of leukemia (1200 cGy) are associated with better neurocognitive outcome over time.
