Background: SARS-CoV2 is associated with neurological and psychiatric complications including cerebrovascular events, encephalopathy and peripheral nerve disease. Detailed clinical data, including factors associated with recovery, is lacking, hampering prediction modelling and targeted therapeutic interventions. We studied COVID-associated neurological and psychiatric complications, to investigate the key clinical features, including those associated ... Read more >>
