EFFECTS OF COVID-19 ON THE BRAIN

June 8, 2022

Albert Einstein College of Medicine researchers have been awarded a five-year, $3.5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study the effects of COVID-19 on the brains of adults who had mild or asymptomatic infection. Using neuroimaging, cognitive, and immunological tests, the investigators will examine if SARS-CoV-2 infection induces lasting changes in the brain and affects neurocognitive function.line.

LONG COVID: NERVE DAMAGE MAY ARISE FROM IMMUNE SYSTEM DYSFUNCTION

March 11, 2022

Michael Lipton, M.D., Ph.D., notes the limitations of a small study linking nerve damage in long COVID to immune dysfunction, but says the underlying mechanism causing neuropathy is likely related to inflammation or autoimmunity. Dr. Lipton is professor of radiology and associate director of the Gruss Magnetic Resonance Research Center at Einstein, and director of MRI Services at Montefiore.

ORAL CONTRACEPTION LINKED TO SMALLER HYPOTHALMUS

December 13, 2019

The hypothalamus, located at the base of the brain, is involved in regulating body temperature, sleep, thirst and hunger. Michael Lipton, M.D., Ph.D., used MRI to assess the size of the hypothalamus in 21 women taking oral contraceptives (“The Pill”) and in 29 nonusers. Women taking oral contraceptives were found to have significantly smaller hypothalamuses compared with nonusers.

SOCCER HEADING WORSE FOR WOMEN'S BRAINS THAN MEN'S

August 3, 2018

Women’s brains are much more vulnerable than men’s to injury from repeated soccer heading, according to a new study by researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, part of Montefiore. The study found that regions of damaged brain tissue were five times more extensive in female soccer players than in males, suggesting that sex-specific guidelines may be warranted for preventing soccer-related head injuries. The results were published online today in Radiology.
