Brain fog, headache, and unable to smell or taste anything- most people are becoming aware of these symptoms as some of the features of COVID-19. According to the researchers, these are clear signs that the virus has an impact on neurological functioning.

However, it is uncertain what this signifies for long-term brain functioning. With preliminary data pointing to a link between COVID-19 and Dementia or Alzheimer’s risk, researchers are keen to learn if the neurological damage induced by COVID-19 will be temporary or if it will result in higher cognitive impairment in an older population.

These symptoms could be the result of a particular viral infection of brain tissue. However, mounting evidence suggests that multiple indirect activities produced by the virus's invasion of epithelial cells and the cardiovascular system, as well as the immune system and inflammation, contribute to long-term neurological abnormalities after COVID-19.

The Brain And The Immune System
During disease and inflammation, the brain's highly specialized immune cells become active, emitting massive amounts of inflammatory signals and changing how they connect with neurons. This includes altering the shape, retracting the spindly arms, and becoming blobby, mobile cells that wrap potential pathogens or cell debris in their route for one type of cell, microglia. However, in doing so, they damage and devour the neural connections that are essential for remembering.

Because COVID-19 causes a huge discharge of inflammatory signals, this particularly affects memory and could lead to dementia. This is due to the fact that there are potentially short-term consequences on cognition and the possibility of long-term changes in memory, attention, and cognition.

How Does Inflammation Affect Memory In The Long Run?
Both the brain and the immune system have developed expressly to alter as a consequence in order to neutralize risk and enhance survival. Changes in the connections between neurons in the brain enable us to remember memories and quickly modify behavior to avoid danger or explore food or social opportunities. The immune system has changed to optimize the inflammatory reaction and antibody production in relation to previously encountered infections.

Long-term alterations in the brain after illness, on the other hand, are strongly associated with an increased risk of age-related cognitive decline and Alzheimer's disease. Neuroimmune cells' disruptive and damaging activity, as well as inflammatory signaling, can permanently damage memory.

Stem Cell Therapy for Covid-induced Dementia
Stem cell treatment is an innovative method of treating Dementia or Alzheimer's disease. It entails the administration of Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC) throughout the body. When delivered in high numbers, these stem cells may locate and heal inflammation within the body. This distinguishing feature of stem cells may make them a feasible treatment for Alzheimer's disease. The goal of stem cell treatment for Alzheimer's disease is to replace damaged cells with healthy stem cells that can proliferate on their own, resulting in the formation of new healthy brain cells.
