Our study aims to link ex vivo brain MRI signal abnormalities with neuropathological findings relative to the SARS-CoV-2 infection. MRI offers a “big picture” image on the whole organ compared to histology alone, which can be limited to blindly sampled small sections, when recent imagery is not available. The objective is to characterize the brain lesions linked to the viral infection. Our project should produce a new description of the anatomical structures affected by the infection in the central nervous system, and in particular those related to the brain vascular system.
