Recorded Webinar “COVID-19 AND THE BRAIN”

Luria Neuroscience Institute is pleased to announce the webinar “COVID-19 and the Brain.” The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of us and has changed our world in unfathomable ways. In order to cope with, and eventually overcome this new disease, we need to understand it in all its aspects. In this new webinar, we review the emerging knowledge of how COVID-19 affects the human brain, and discuss the timeliness of the construct “neuro-COVID-19.”

The webinar features Elkhonon Goldberg, Ph.D., ABPP., a clinical neuropsychologist and cognitive neuroscientist, Clinical Professor in the Department of Neurology, NYU School of Medicine and Diplomate of The American Board of Professional Psychology in Clinical Neuropsychology. His critically acclaimed and bestselling books have been translated into 21 languages.

The webinar takes 1 hour and 1 CE Credit will be awarded. The fee for the webinar is $60. There is a separate $5 processing fee charged by CE credit sponsor R. Cassidy Seminars.

COVID-19 is a viral illness caused by the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), which has become a global pandemic affecting all of us. While it has been originally characterized as respiratory illness, a growing body of evidence suggests that the brain may also be affected. In this webinar we will examine the emerging evidence of COVID-19 impact on the human brain and the multiple clinical neurological manifestations of this impact. In addition, we will briefly review the impact of diseases caused by other coronaviruses (SARS, MERS), as well as HIV and HSV, on the brain.
