Covid not only affects the lungs, but also the heart, brain, and other important organs

 By modifying brain structure, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and a brain injury can change behavior Now it appears that coronavirus can do the same.


We discovered coronavirus targets not only the lungs but also the heart, brain, and other key organs not long after the pandemic began.

The brain's reaction was particularly perplexing.

Patients with severe sadness, hallucinations, and paranoia would be admitted to the hospital.

And in the past year, an increasing number of people have had to deal with Long Covid symptoms such as brain fog, anxiety, or sadness, inability to think clearly or retain memories, and stumbling for words.

These psychological shifts, however, aren't exclusive to Covid.

Some Long Covid symptoms are similar to those caused by numerous chronic brain and personality-altering disorders, according to Maura Boldrini, a neuroscientist and psychiatrist at Manhattan's Columbia University Irving Medical Centre.

All of these factors, according to Sharon Guynup, a science and environmental writer for National Geographic, can alter people's perceptions of the world, destabilize emotions, and weaken self-esteem and confidence.

It's unclear what's going on in the brain, but researchers are more convinced that inflammation plays a role.

A storm of inflammatory cytokines may be triggered by Covid-19, producing an overwhelming immunological reaction powerful enough to permanently damage or destroy brain cells, resulting in a personality change.

So, what's going on inside your head?

The brain shrinks and a person's behavior becomes more chaotic, according to Boldrini, as nerve cells quit functioning and die.

The learning and memory capabilities of the brain begin to degrade when the number of neurons in the brain decreases.

Viruses have been known to cause mayhem in the brain.

During the HIV epidemic, I recall numerous acquaintances suffering from paranoia, hallucinations, memory loss, and inability to concentrate.

Many of the abnormalities observed in Long Covid are comparable to those identified in people who have suffered traumatic brain injuries, concussions from a contact sport, or who have served in the military.

Damage to the frontal lobes, which are located behind the brow, can affect executive functions such as planning, organizing, and multitasking.

Patients' memory and self-awareness may deteriorate, and they may be unaware of what they've lost.
