A new study is shedding light on how COVID-19 is disrupting normal brain function in infected patients.


Researchers at the Baylor College of Medicine reviewed 84 studies involving more than 600 patients who had been diagnosed with COVID-19. The median age was 61, and two-thirds of the patients were men, while one-third were women. The study’s authors examined the results of patients’ electroencephalograms — known as EEGs, the tests detect abnormalities in brain waves, according to Johns Hopkins Medicine — and found that brain abnormalities in COVID-19 patients were “common.”

“This is Conner Golden, Doctor.” She then turned toward us, nodded and with a face-lit smile announced, “Mr. and Mrs. Golden.” Hannah then indicated the neurologist with her open palm. “And this is Dr. O’Rourke.” She left and pulled the door closed behind her. My heart quickened.

Study finds surprising connection in some women with genetic generalized epilepsy

More frequent seizures during the menstrual cycle in women with genetic generalized epilepsy have been linked for the first time to drug-resistant epilepsy, when anti-seizure medications don't work, according to a Rutgers coauthored study that may help lead to tailored treatments.


Women with a form of genetic generalized epilepsy called catamenial epilepsy -- when seizure frequency increases during their menstrual cycle -- were nearly four times more likely to have drug-resistant epilepsy than women who experience no changes in frequency, according to the study in the journal Neurology. This association was found in two independent samples.
