・ケンブリッジ大学の研究では、半数の患者さんが、医療関係者に自分の症状を真剣に受け止めてもらうことが困難であると報告しています。おそらく、認知症状は、肺の問題や疲労と同じように注目されないからだと思います。
・SARS-CoV-2ウイルスに感染してから数ヵ月後に、約70%のロングCOVID患者が集中力の低下と記憶障害を経験した。
・COVID長期滞在者は、認知テストでより悪い結果を示した。
これらの症状の重症度は、COVID-19の初感染時に経験した疲労やめまい、頭痛などの神経症状の程度に関連していた。
・研究対象者の半数は、医療関係者に自分の症状を真剣に受け止めてもらうことが困難であると報告しています。
・長期にわたるCOVIDの症状が重く続いている研究参加者の75%が、長期間にわたって仕事ができないことを報告しています。

Watch this space for upcoming studies recruiting

We will soon start recruiting for TWO new studies on the impact of COVID-19 infection on Cognition:

Covid and Cognition in Adults

We are conducting a study looking at people’s experience of COVID-19 and how they’ve felt since. We are particularly interested in understanding what effect the virus may have on cognition during the post-viral period. This ONLINE study involves some questionnaires about you, and your experience of COVID-19 (whether or not you’ve had it), followed by some cognitive tasks. It should take around 1 hour. We would then like to follow respondents up every few weeks (this part is optional). You might be asked to simply report how you’re feeling, or to repeat some or all of the cognitive tasks. We want to understand how the impact of the virus changes over time following recovery, and how that might differ between people who have experienced different symptoms..

Who can take part?

In order to be eligible to participate, the following must be true:

– Native/ fluent English speaker
– 18 years or older
– Do not have a severe pre-existing cognitive impairment (e.g. advanced dementia or severe learning difficulties)
– Do not have a history of psychotic disorder, alcohol or substance dependence
– Do not have severe visual or motor impairment (making you unable to interact with computer-based tasks)
– No extreme vulnerability for other reasons not stated (for example meaning that you cannot give informed consent)
