Abstract

Radiotherapy is an important modality in the treatment of Brain cancer. Radiotherapy remains the standard treatment for vast majority of high-grade or malignant brain tumors and plays an integral role in treatment of many low-grade and benign primary brain tumors. However,' concerns regarding neurocognitive toxicity after radiotherapy in patients with benign or low-grade tumors make the timing of treatment controversial. Neur?cognitive Functions (NCF) are cognitive functions closely linked to the function of particular areas, neural pathways in the brain.
