    Russian scientists conducted a study of cognitive disorders caused by COVID-19. In their work, experts summarized the data accumulated during the pandemic. THEM. Sechenov Vladimir Zakharov, the analyzed works show that coronavirus has a negative impact on cognitive functions, even if a person has had an infection asymptomatically.

    Cognitive functions include not only intelligence or memory, but also clarity perception, the ability to acquire new motor skills, reaction speed, attention concentration.

    “However, there are no exact statistics on the prevalence of mental disorders due to COVID-19 on a planetary scale. We are only at the stage of accumulation of information. The coronavirus entered our lives only two years ago, and its neurological and cognitive consequences were not immediately noticed, ”said Vladimir Zakharov.

    According to the doctor, the most common cognitive symptoms after the coronavirus, it is increased fatigue during mental stress and a feeling of fog in the head, which makes it difficult to concentrate. To designate this condition, even a special expression “coronavirus fog” appeared. Changes first occur in the sphere of reaction speed and concentration of attention, that is, a person becomes slower. If the deviation is small, then the patient and others may not notice anything, since a decrease in attention is recorded only in fairly complex neuropsychological tests.
