Due to improved diagnosis and treatment, survival rates for pediatric cancer have increased by over 80%. Nonetheless, pediatric cancer survivors bear a high risk for late effects in cognitive domains such as executive functions (Krull et al., 2019), for example. In order to remediate potential late effects, interventions are needed. Therefore, the aim of this study was to compare the effects of a working memory training, physical training and a wait-list control group on cognitive functions in pediatric cancer survivors.
