Covid-19 “long-haulers” are people who have not recovered from their Covid-19 symptoms weeks or even months after first experienceing their symptons. Post viral syndrome, or post Covid-19 syndrome refers to the constellation of symptoms long-haulers are experiencing. People with more severe infections might experience residual effects not just in their lungs, but in their heart, brain, immune system and elsewhere. This presentation will look at emerging information about the brains of long-haulers through examining EEG data. Suggestions for possible interventions to aid recovery will be offered.
