Abstract

This paper provides an overview of pediatric brain tumors and reviews the literature on long-term neurobehavioral outcomes for these children. Progress in this area has been slow due to numerous methodological and practical complications. While some general conclusions can be drawn, the development of comprehensive models awaits more research into the multiplicity of biological and nonbiological events, and their interactions, potentially affecting outcome. Increased theoretical and methodological sophistication will be needed to address this complex classification of diseases. Barriers to research in this area are enumerated as are suggestions for future efforts.
