Aberrant olfactory network functional connectivity in people with olfactory dysfunction following COVID-19 infection

The study “Aberrant olfactory network functional connectivity in people with olfactory dysfunction following COVID-19 infection” focuses on the impact of COVID-19 on the brain’s olfactory networks. This exploratory observational study used multi-modal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to assess changes in functional connectivity (FC), cerebral blood flow (CBF), and gray matter (GM) density in individuals with COVID-19-related anosmia (loss of smell). Key findings from the study include: In summary, the study sheds light on the neural alterations in individuals with long-term olfactory dysfunction following COVID-19 infection, offering a foundation for future research and potential therapeutic interventions.
