Charity AbScent features in BBC news

The BBC team used the smell and taste loss charity, AbScent and its smell training workshops to illustrate the way in which Covid-10 negatively affects the brain, and what people might do to try and retrain their brains.

A new study has found that even mild cases of covid-19 can cause changes in the brain. Scientists from the University of Oxford looked at MRI scans taken before and after infection and found significant differences, including brain shrinkage and loss of grey matter, in the parts of the brain related to smell and memory. It’s not known whether the changes are permanent or will be reversed over time. Our Science Editor Rebecca Morelle has been looking at the research.
