Neurological Associations of COVID-19: Study results from COPING and CoCo-Neuro.
The COVID-19 pandemic, caused by SARS-CoV-2, is of a scale not seen since the 1918 influenza pandemic. Although the predominant clinical presentation is with respiratory disease, neurological manifestations frequent. In this episode, we will present results from two studies from the UK and France. The COPING study assesses the impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on mental and neurological health, and how different factors associated with the virus are affecting the population. The CoCo-Neuro study characterises the neurological and psychiatric manifestations occurring in the context of Covid-19 infection and aims to improve clinical management, rehabilitation and follow-up.

Professor Gerome Breen
Professor of Psychiatric Genetics @King's College London
Professor of Psychiatric Genetics in the Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre, at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College London. He is a theme lead at the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre at the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust and leads the mental health arm of the overall NIHR BioResource. Within this he leads the Genetic Links to Anxiety and Depression (GLAD; n>24,000). His research spans molecular and bioinformatics studies of psychiatric and neurological disorders and neuropsychiatric/neuropsychology traits. He has published >200 articles on mood disorders, addictions, schizophrenia and eating disorders but has been working throughout the pandemic on the psychiatric and neurological consequences of COVID-19 and the societal response to it in the ~30,000 person COVID-19 Psychiatry and Neurological Genetics (COPING) study in the NIHR BioResource.
