There is accumulating evidence of the neurological and neuropsychiatric features of infection with SARS-CoV-2. In this systematic review and meta-analysis, we aimed to describe the characteristics of the early literature and estimate point prevalences for neurological and neuropsychiatric manifestations. We searched MEDLINE, Embase, PsycINFO and CINAHL up to 18 July 2020 for randomised controlled trials, cohort studies, case-control studies, cross-sectional studies and case series. Studies… 
Mental and neurological disorders and risk of COVID-19 susceptibility, illness severity and mortality: A systematic review, meta-analysis and call for action
TLDR
Overall, mental and neurological disorders were associated with a significant high risk of infection and mortality and association with illness severity was stronger among younger COVID-19 patients, and those with subsequent mental disorders, living in low- and middle-income regions.
Rehabilitation needs following COVID-19: Five-month post-discharge clinical follow-up of individuals with concerning self-reported symptoms
TLDR
This study underscores the importance of providing extensive examination of cases with persisting problems after COVID-19, especially since symptoms such as fatigue and breathlessness are highly nonspecific, but may represent significant underlying functional impairments.
Delirium and COVID‐19: a narrative review of emerging evidence
TLDR
The pandemic has played out on the national stage and the effect of delirium on patients, relatives and healthcare workers remains unknown but evidence from the previous SARS outbreak suggests there may be long‐lasting psychological damage.
Considerations for causality assessment of neurological and neuropsychiatric complications of SARS-CoV-2 vaccines: from cerebral venous sinus thrombosis to functional neurological disorder
TLDR
Considerations for causality assessment of neurological and neuropsychiatric complications of SARSCoV-2 vaccines: from cerebral venous sinus thrombosis to functional neurological disorder.
Obsessive-compulsive symptoms and the Covid-19 pandemic: A rapid scoping review
TLDR
The aim was to distil the current evidence base on relationships between the pandemic and obsessive-compulsive symptoms, in patients, and general population samples, to identify important unaddressed issues.
COVID-19 vaccination and Guillain-Barre syndrome: analyses using the National Immunoglobulin Database
TLDR
Data reported from a multicentre surveillance dataset suggest that no specific clinical features, including facial weakness, are associated with vaccination-related GBS compared to non-vaccinated cases, and data from the linked NID/NIMS datasets suggest that first-dose ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccination is associated with an excess GBS risk.
Headache as an acute and post‐COVID‐19 symptom in COVID‐19 survivors: A meta‐analysis of the current literature
TLDR
The aim of this pooled analysis was to synthesize the prevalence of post‐COVID headache in hospitalized and non‐hospitalized patients recovering from SARS‐CoV‐2 infection.
COVID-19: neurologische Manifestationen – Update
Die COVID-19-Infektion kann sich über das pulmonale Erscheinungsbild hinaus mit einer Vielzahl an sowohl akuten als auch chronischen neurologischen und neuropsychiatrischen (Begleit‑)Symptomen und
COVID-19 and mental health in children and adolescents: a diagnostic panel to map psycho-social consequences in the pandemic context
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, much research has been done on the psycho-social consequences, especially for children, adolescents and families. In the long run, there is a large set
Understanding the Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Lockdowns and Social Isolation on Sleep Quality
TLDR
It is argued for a possible mechanistic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, with its imposed restrictions and social isolation on sleep quality, and some of the potential international differences, as well as similarities, behind reported idiosyncratic biological vulnerabilities that may have contributed to the genesis of sleep issues are discussed.

The neurology and neuropsychiatry of COVID-19: a systematic review and meta-analysis of the early literature reveals frequent CNS manifestations and key emerging narratives
Objectives There is accumulating evidence of the neurological and neuropsychiatric features of infection with SARS-CoV-2. In this systematic review and meta-analysis, we aimed to describe the
Neurological manifestations of COVID-19: a systematic review and meta-analysis of proportions
TLDR
Identifying some neurological manifestations like smell and taste disturbances can be used to screen patients with COVID-19 so that early identification and isolation is possible.
Psychiatric and neuropsychiatric presentations associated with severe coronavirus infections: a systematic review and meta-analysis with comparison to the COVID-19 pandemic
TLDR
The systematic review and meta-analysis revealed that during the acute illness, common symptoms among patients admitted to hospital for SARS or MERS included confusion and depression, and in one study traumatic memories.
Clinical manifestations and evidence of neurological involvement in 2019 novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Lab, electrophysiological, radiological, and pathological evidence supported neurologic involvement of COVID-19, suggesting neurological involvement is an important aspect of the disease.
Neurologic Characteristics in Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
Doctors should be aware of the presence of neurologic signs and symptoms as a chief complaint of COVID-19, in order to improve management and prevent a worsening outcome of the patients, according to the Oxford Center for Evidence-Based Medicine guidelines.
Neurological and neuropsychiatric complications of COVID-19 in 153 patients: a UK-wide surveillance study
TLDR
This is the first nationwide, cross-specialty surveillance study of acute neurological and psychiatric complications of COVID-19 and provides valuable and timely data that are urgently needed by clinicians, researchers, and funders.
Prevalence of Headache in Patients With Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of 14,275 Patients
TLDR
From the first 4-month data of the outbreak, headache was detected in 10.1% of the adult COVID-19 patients, with no significant difference of headache prevalence in severe or critical vs. non-severe patients.
A prospective clinical study of detailed neurological manifestations in patients with COVID-19
TLDR
Headache was the most common seen neurological symptom in this disease and it is suggested that determining these neurological symptoms prevents the diagnosis delay and helps to prohibit virus spread.
Early neurological manifestations of hospitalized COVID-19 patients
TLDR
Headache in association with arthralgia and muscle pain seems to reflect the common symptoms of the flu-like syndrome, and not COVID-19 infection-specific, as well as the possible relationship between plasmatic inflammatory indices and olfactory disorders (ODs), muscle pain and creatine kinase (CK).
Guillain-Barré syndrome associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection: causality or coincidence?
TLDR
The patient’s initial labor abnorma lities, which were consistent with clinical characteristics of patients with COVID-19, indicated the presence of SARS-CoV-2 infection on admission, and it is considered that the virus was transmitted to her relatives dur ing her hospital stay.
