Spinal cord injury and circadian disruption: 1 of 2

Highlight figure ut.jpg

Dr. Gaudet published paper 1 of 2 on spinal cord injury-elicited circadian disruption in eNeuro. This was a collaboration completed with colleagues at the University of Colorado Boulder. The manuscript shows for the first time that spinal cord injury disrupts various measures of circadian rhythms, including body temperature, activity, and corticosterone. These results could have implications for post-injury treatment, from acute-to-chronic phases. The paper has received press coverage! See here and here.
