Abstract

Clinical characterisation of the neurological and cognitive effects of SARS-CoV-2 linked brain injury, by examining CNS effects of SARS-CoV-2 in an international collaborative effort to identify the frequency of such symptoms and how these can be detected, predicted, monitored and, potentially, treated. Project will include comparing cerebrospinal fluid/blood biomarker profiles for neuronal injury and neuroinflammation between COVID-19 positive patients with and without neurological symptoms.
