This week's Lancet Psychiatry research, which provided fresh insight on the coronavirus's long-term neurological and mental effects,
found that several brain abnormalities were more likely to develop two years after infection.
Researchers at the University of Oxford conducted the analysis, which drew on health records data from more than 1 million people worldwide.
They discovered that while many common psychiatric disorders had a short window of normal risk after covid exposure,
people continued to be at higher risk for dementia, epilepsy, psychosis, and cognitive deficit (or brain fog) two years later.
The persistent brain fog that is a typical complaint among coronavirus survivors seems to be more dangerous for adults.
According to Paul Harrison, professor of psychiatry at the University of Oxford and the study's senior author, the study's findings were a combination of good and bad news.
