Covid and Cognition

Thu 12 May 2022


People think that long COVID is ‘just’ fatigue or a cough, but cognitive issues are the second most common symptom - and our data suggest this is because there is a significant impact on the ability to remember. Seven in ten long COVID patients experience concentration and memory problems several months after the initial onset of their disease’ says Dr Lucy Cheke who is the senior author of the ‘Cognitive and Memory Deficits in Long COVID’ study.

Research plays an important role in providing evidence that patients with Long COVID experience a significant impact on their ability to remember. Such a short sentence has enormous ramifications on my daily life as a patient with Long COVID, Lyn Curtis.

Dr Lucy Cheke is a Lecturer in the Psychology Department and head of the “Cognition and Motivated Behaviour” Lab. Her research explores various aspects of learning and memory, and in the past few years has focused particularly on the association between memory and obesity.

Lyn Curtis is an undergraduate student at the University of Exeter, and a patient representative member of the Covid and Cognition study group, headed by Dr Lucy Cheke. Her area of interest is the impact of Long COVID on menopausal females and the impact of hormonal dysregulation following COVID-19.

In this session, Dr Cheke will share the data about the long-term consequences of Covid-19 on cognitive functions in adults and Lyn Curtis will share her lived experience of Long COVID to provide insight into what this data looks like in daily life.
