According to the specialist, first of all, the success of recovery depends on the degree of brain damage. For example, due to the thrombosis of some of the small vessels, a number of neurons responsible for memory are “turned off”. And this leads to the fact that not all connections can be restored.
But at the same time, a person can return to the previous ability to memorize information. True, for this you have to work hard and diligently engage in memory training. This is due to the fact that during the recollection of information, the brain renews memory and trains other neurons to take on this function.
Pavel Horoshev, a Russian neurologist, also agreed with Chumakov. He noted that mental stress is an excellent way to restore nerve cells after suffering COVID-19.
