Our preprint showing some quite worrying levels of cognitive underperformance in people recovered from Covid-19 vs controls. N>84k.
#Cognitive deficits following #COVID19 Huge study (👉n = 84.000) finds that individuals who recovered from suspected or confirmed #COVID19 perform worse on cognitive tests in multiple domains
Excited to finally share this preprint that I'm glad to have had a small part in - led by including lots of other great people: "Cognitive deficits in people who have recovered from COVID-19 relative to controls: An N=84,285 online study"
This is one of the more terrifying papers to be published about the effects of Covid-19. We just can't afford to have 8.5 IQ points knocked off a significant proportion of our population.
Cognitive deficits in people who have recovered from COVID-19 relative to controls: An N=84,285 online study #medRxiv
People who had recovered from #coronavirus , exhibited significant cognitive deficits when controlling for age, gender, education level, income, racial-ethnic group & pre-existing med disorders via et al
Usual warnings necessary re inferring causation from a cross-sectional study (pre-print): et al’s analysis of test data from 80k+ people shows ‘significant cognitive deficits’ in those recovered from mild as well as severe Covid #LongCovid
