The goal of this study was to measure brain metabolites in patients recovered from COVID-19 to examine the chronic effects of COVID, also known as long COVID, which have been shown to have neurological effects. Spectroscopy in the cingulate gyrus revealed increased choline and glutamate/glutamine which may be reflective of neuroinflammatory changes due to long COVID.
