Research team used artificial intelligence to uncover association between COVID-19 and brain changes
A new study has identified mechanisms by which COVID-19 can lead to Alzheimer’s disease-like dementia. The findings indicate an overlap between COVID-19 and brain changes common in Alzheimer’s, and may help inform risk management and therapeutic strategies for COVID-19-associated cognitive impairment.
