Scientists continue to investigate how COVID-19 affects our senses and changes the way we interact with society. University of Arizona Neurology professor Katalin Gothard says the isolation that comes with COVID-19 especially impacts our sense of touch. She is also studying how COVID-19 is changing our brain chemistry.

Katalin Gothard spoke with Leslie Tolbert, Ph.D Regent’s professor emerita in Neuroscience at the University of Arizona.
