COVID-19 and Cognition: Impact for the Medical SLP

April 30, 2020
We’re sure you’ve seen no shortage of confusing and frankly dizzying news updates on COVID-19. It’s hard to keep up! While information is changing daily and there’s still a lot we don’t know, studies and cases are emerging that suggest some type of association between neurological symptoms and COVID-19. Symptoms like headache, stiff neck, and loss of taste and smell raise suspicion of central nervous system involvement, especially when considering what we know about other related viruses. And, respiratory failure in patients with COVID-19 could possibly mean the virus entered the brainstem through synaptic connections between it and the lungs.
