The COVID-19 infection, even in its mild or moderate respiratory forms, can lead to neuropsychological deficits. The COVID-COG project was implemented during the first wave of the COVID pandemic, in response to the questioning at the time concerning the impact that an infection could have on neuropsychological abilities. The project aims at identifying neuropsychological and neuropsychiatric deficits in post-COVID-19 patients and determining if those deficits are associated with the severity of respiratory symptoms in the acute phase and/or with the personal experience of the infection as well as the pandemic context. The project features an exhaustive neuropsychological evaluation, as well as MRI, olfactory and neurological assessments, administered 6-9 months and 12-15 months post infection. For this project, we collaborated with eight departments of the University Hospitals of Geneva, the Leenaards Memory Centre at the Lausanne University Hospital and the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. Finally, the project was funded by the Swiss National Foundation (NRP 78 2020 to 2022 – Grant N°: 4078P0_198438).
