Podcast Oct 09, 2020
Opinionated Science is Technology Networks’ homemade podcast, where our team of scientists-turned-journalists cut out the chewy jargon and serve up slices of the most fascinating stories from the world of science. Expect a new Opinionated Science every other Friday.
On this episode, the team will discuss how the SARS-CoV-2 virus affects our brain.
Over time, it‘s become clear that in addition to affecting our respiratory system, SARS-CoV-2 infection can also have implications for our brain and nerves. This podcast will untangle the disparate effects involved, covering everything from a subdued sense of smell to serious brain inflammation and damage. Finally, we’ll discuss evidence that a “third wave“ of COVID-19 could target the brain in years to come.
