Theme: Other neurological disorders

Patients with severe acute respiratory syndrome with coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection can develop a wide variety of neurological complications. In this symposium, we will have four speakers discussing their work, looking at the pathophysiological mechanisms of the virus and the long-term implications.
