SARS-CoV-2 infection and viral fusogens cause neuronal and glial fusion that compromises neuronal activity

The study, titled “SARS-CoV-2 infection and viral fusogens cause neuronal and glial fusion that compromises neuronal activity” conducted by Ramón Martínez-Mármol and colleagues, provides significant insights into the effects of SARS-CoV-2 on the nervous system​​. Key Findings: In summary, the study reveals that SARS-CoV-2 infection can cause neuronal and glial fusion, leading to significant changes in neuronal activity and potentially contributing to the neurological symptoms seen in COVID-19 and long COVID. This discovery adds a critical dimension to our understanding of how viruses like SARS-CoV-2 can affect brain function and cause neuropathology.
