The “Herold” already describes that in the case of congenital hypothyroidism, “the brain damage is irreversible” and “if congenital hypothyroidism is treated 3 weeks too late, it is no longer possible to graduate from high school later.” But what happens in the adult brain when thyroid hormones are given or withdrawn? How exactly is brain function, brain structure, memory and behavior affected?
