Researchers found far higher levels of coronavirus in the brains of mice than the lungs - a possible explanation for neurological symptoms

Medical staff member Gabriel Cervera Rodriguez examines a patient's MRI images at the COVID-19 intensive care unit at United Memorial Medical Center in Houston, Texas on December 10, 2020. Go Nakamura/Getty Images The coronavirus can linger indefinitely in the brains of mice, according to a new study. The research may help explain persistent neurological issues in humans, such as dizziness, headaches, or brain fog. In some cases, these neurological problems could give rise to chronic i...

A third of COVID-19 survivors are diagnosed with conditions like stroke, dementia, and psychosis

Crystal Cox/Insider One in eight COVID-19 survivors receive their first-ever psychiatric or neurological diagnosis within six months of testing positive.  Cognitive complications are more prevalent among survivors with prior mental health diagnoses and those who've been hospitalized.  The virus may lead to neurological complications due to a lack of oxygen, the immune system's response, or by invading the brain itself.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Six months after ...

More than 80% of people hospitalized for COVID-19 suffer neurological symptoms, from brain fog to delirium

Crystal Cox/Insider More than 80% of hospitalized coronavirus patients experience neurological symptoms ranging from dizziness to an altered mental state.  People who suffered from the most severe complication tended to share characteristics with President Trump, like being male, older, and admitted to the hospital soon after symptoms set in.  Past research and anecdotes have demonstrated COVID-19's wide-ranging impact on the nervous system, causing everything from loss of taste and smell...

The coronavirus pandemic disrupted clinical trials. A top ALS researcher explains how that helps the work she's doing.

Dr. Merit Cudkowicz is speeding up how treatments for ALS are developed, even during the coronavirus pandemic. Sarah Bastille/Mass General Researchers led by Massachusetts General Hospital are testing several different drugs for ALS at the same time. They had to delay clinical trials because of the coronavirus pandemic, but ended up finding ways to help people participate from their homes. Lead researcher Dr. Merit Cudkowicz expects to have answers for three of the ALS drugs by next summer....

Bloom Science Plans to Advance Microbial Treatment for Epilepsy

Bloom Science, a biotech founded to advance a new class of microbe-based therapeutics for neurological disorders, is making its debut today with the publication of research that suggests certain bacteria in the gut could be used to manage epileptic seizures. The research, published in the journal Cell, indicate that several specific strains of bacteria work together in mice to provide neuroprotective effects against epileptic seizures. By delivering these microbes in the gut, a scientific...

Creativity, the brain, and society

Creativity research has come of age. Today, the nature of the creative process is investigated with every tool of modern cognitive neuroscience: neuroimaging, genetics, computational modeling, among them. Yet the brain mechanisms of creativity remain a mystery and the studies of the brains of “creative” individuals have so far failed to produce conclusive results. But the mystery is gradually yielding ground. As we are reconceptualizing creativity as a complex, and arguably derivative construct ...

Can narcolepsy research help solve one of the greatest medical mysteries of the 20th century?

In late 1916, while the world was entrenched in the Great War, two physicians on opposing sides of the conflict started to encounter patients who presented with bizarre neurological signs. Most notably, the patients experienced profound lethargy, and would sleep for abnormally long periods of time. One of the physicians, Constantin von Economo, was at the Psychiatric-Neurological Clinic at the University of Vienna. The other, René Cruchet, was a French physician in a military hospital for neurop...
