ECNP 2022 | The causes of brain fog

Sabina Brennan, PhD, Trinity College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland, provides an overview of a broad range of underlying health conditions, medications and lifestyle factors that can cause brain fog. Brain fog is a term used to describe a collection of symptoms that affect executive and cognitive function, such as memory issues, confusion, or mental fatigue. Brain fog can be an indication of underlying health conditions, for example, autoimmune diseases, neurological disorders, or chronic health conditions such as fibromyalgia. It is also often associated with many medications and treatments including antidepressants and chemotherapy. Furthermore, a number of lifestyle factors can cause brain fog such as stress, a lack of sleep, poor diet and low physical activity. This interview took place at the 35th European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP) Congress 2022 in Vienna, Austria.
