Ebola has the potential to cause both acute and chronic compromise of neurological status. To better understand the relevant neurobiology, a pilot MRI study of infected macaques was performed. Data indicate that Ebola exposure leads to acute disruption of some, but not all, intrinsic connectivity networks, even in the absence of intraparenchymal lesions. These studies represent the first non-invasive functional imaging studies of living, Ebola infected non-human primates.
