Troubles cognitifs et COVID-19

Abstract : In December 2019, a new strain of coronavirus named severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) of unknown origin emerged in China before spreading around the world. This infectious disease called coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) is still a poorly understood pathology, responsible for various symptoms, some of which remain to be explored. While several studies report an invasion of the central nervous system by the virus, a number of patients suffering from a long form of the disease report cognitive complaints. These include complaints about memory and attentional skills, as well as difficulties with lexical access. Faced with a lack of knowledge about these disorders, we designed a study to assess the cognitive functions of patients who had been infected with SARS-CoV-2. Our objective was to detect possible disorders in this population. Our hypothesis were that SARS-CoV 2019 is responsible for impairments in cognition, and that it affects the same cognitive processes in all patients. Our results suggest that a large proportion of infected adults exhibit executive-dominant cognitive impairment, although all domains explored are affected.
