    Brain health after COVID-19, pneumonia, heart

    About The Study: The findings of this study including 345 participants suggest that post–COVID-19 brain health was impaired but, overall, no more than the brain health of patients from 3 non–COVID-19 cohorts of comparable disease severity. Long-term associations with brain health might not be specific to COVID-19 but associated with overall illness severity and hospitalization. This information is important for putting understandable concerns about brain health after COVID-19 into perspective. 

    Authors: Daniel Kondziella, M.D., M.Sc., Dr.Philos., and Michael Eriksen Benros, M.D., Ph.D., of Copenhagen University Hospital in Copenhagen, are the corresponding authors.
