Society for Neuroscience Presents 
COVID-19, the Brain, and Mental Health: Weighing the Direct and Indirect Effects

While COVID-19 is often thought of as primarily a respiratory disease, many neurological symptoms are present in those affected. Societal changes in response to the pandemic, such as social isolation and economic disruption, influence mental health. In this webinar, we will discuss recent findings on the direct and indirect implications of COVID-19 on the health and function of the nervous system.

“Advances in brain health rely on an approach that brings together clinicians, educators and researchers from many areas of expertise, which is something we are uniquely positioned to offer at LSU Health as an academic medical center,” said Dr. Elizabeth Disbrow, Director of the Center for Brain Health and an Associate Professor of Neurology. “When researchers work with clinicians, the research improves. When the clinicians work with the researchers, the clinical care improves.”
