Spinal cord injury and circadian disruption: 2 of 2

Dr. Gaudet published paper 2 of 2 on spinal cord injury-induced circadian disruption in Journal of Neurotrauma. This paper reveals that spinal cord injury disrupts crucial rhythms of metabolic function – even far away from the injury site – including peripheral glucose oscillations, glucose machinery mRNA in liver, and circadian rhythms in fecal output. These discoveries highlight new directions for improving spinal cord injury-elicited metabolic dysfunction.
