Why should I participate?

As COVID-19 spread across the globe, there has been little time to understand the neurological impact of the pandemic. That's why with your support, neuroscientists at Western University and The University of Toronto hope to gather enough data to answer pressing questions about the direct and indirect effects of the pandemic on the brain. There is emerging evidence that COVID-19 can increase the risk of strokes (either symptomatic or silent) in some cases, and the disease has resulted in an unprecedented spike in intensive care unit admissions, which is known to have cognitive effects. There may also have been indirect effects from the stress and social isolation caused by the pandemic, even for people who did not catch the disease. Whether you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or not, and whether you have visited a hospital, have felt sick at home, or had no symptoms at all, researchers would like to hear from you.

There have been worldwide efforts to fight the spread of disease, improve diagnosis, and discover new treatments, but little attention has been paid to the impact on those who survive and recover. With your help, we can answer key questions about this novel virus. Does it result in cognitive impairment? Is the burden different for those requiring hospitalization compared to those who can stay home? Are there age, sex, and medical risk factors that predict the virus's effects on the brain? The answers to these questions will contribute to the global effort to fight COVID-19 and help others who have been affected.
