- Neuropsychological Consequences of Covid-19
With guest speaker, Professor Barbara Wilson, OBE , PhD DSc, CPsychol, FBPsS, FmedSC, AcSS
Although we know a considerable amount about the medical aspects of the new corona virus, SARS-Covid-2 and the illness it causes namely Covid-19, less is known about the neuropsychological aspects. There indications that strokes, encephalitis and hypoxia may occur after Covid-19 and that, in addition to the well-acknowledged difficulties with fatigue and deconditioning, people who have been severely ill may have cognitive, emotional and behavioural problems that require a referral to neuropsychology and/or neuropsychiatry services. We report on 70 patients referred to neuropsychology at St George’s Hospital, London.
