How is brain fog defined as such, is it a measurable ‘thing’?
What we call brain fog in the medical/psychological community is a long-term, poor “cognitive function”. Having emerged from the symptoms of long-covid, brain fog is the cognitive equivalent of feeling emotionally distressed – it’s almost the way the brain expresses sadness, beyond emotion” (Pariante, 2021) and covers everything from our memory, our attention, and our ability to problem-solve to our capacity to be creative. And given our isolation and inactivity, experts aren’t surprised that people are experiencing this more. Brain fog can be measured through the use of surveys and scales and compared to peers experiencing the same.
