Neurological Associations of COVID-19: How does SARS-CoV-2 affect the brain in mild and severe disease?
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
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 are frequent. In this episode, Dr Clarissa Lin Yasuda will talk about how SARS-CoV-2 impairs neuronal viability and Prof Paul Harrison will talk about his research on bidirectional associations between COVID-19 and psychiatric disorder published in Lancet Psychiatry. We will also have a brief literature digest from @Neuropsychcovid. The webinar is followed by the WHO COVID-Neuro Clinical Exchange.

- Prof Clarissa Lin Yasuda, University of Campinas, Brazil: Impairment of neuronal viability by SARS-CoV-2
- Prof Paul Harrison, University of Oxford, UK: Bidirectional associations between COVID-19 and psychiatric disorder
- Dr Danish Hafeez, School of Medical Sciences, University of Manchester, UK, RCPsych Psych Star and JNNP blogger: COVID-Neuro Highlights from JNNP Blog

- Professor Tom Solomon, Chair of Neurological Science, University of Liverpool, Director of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Health Protection Research Unit in Emerging and Zoonotic Infections

2:00-2:30 PM
The COVID-Neuro Clinical Exchange is co-organized by The Global Health Network and World Health Organization (WHO) Neurology & COVID-19 Global Forum. Our goals are to promote discussion around neurological care and COVID-19 in all settings.

Please note: You are welcome to join for both sessions (1:00pm-2:30pm) or for one of the two sessions above. The same Zoom link will be used for both.
