ECNP 2022 | What is brain fog?

Brain fog has become an increasingly recognized term, given its prevalence as a major symptom of long COVID. Sabina Brennan, PhD, Trinity College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland, introduces the concept of brain fog and how it can impact quality of life. Brain fog is an umbrella term used to describe a collection of symptoms, most of which tend to concern executive function, such as problems with decision-making and planning. Often, it can be used to describe a feeling of sluggishness or mental fatigue, whereby the patient feels that they cannot think clearly. It can also be associated with memory and learning issues, as well as problems with spatial awareness. This interview took place at the 35th European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP) Congress 2022 in Vienna, Austria.
