Brain recovery through circadian circle

circadian circle rhythms control a newly identified form of brain cell that can regenerate itself. According to recent research, rhythms control brain cell that can regenerate itself, offering important insights into how the body’s internal clock may facilitate recovery following a traumatic brain injury.

The findings of this research open up new paths for the potential traumatic brain injury treatments. Instead of using specific medication treatment options, these injuries are now only addressed with supportive care and rehabilitation. The results also highlight the significance of correcting circadian disruptions to promote the recovery of injured brains.

The circadian clock is a 24-hour rhythm that is maintained by many bodily cells and is controlled by their genes. It was observed that NG2-glia, which is also known as the oligodendrocyte precursor cells, a relatively new form of brain cell, which also exhibit circadian rhythmicity. One of the few cell types that continuously renews itself into maturity, this cell type is highly prolific in the initial week following brain injury.

Traumatic Brain Injury affects more than 2 million people alone in the United States annually, which includes about 0.6 million kids. Right now, brain injury is the prime death reason in the people below the age of 45 years. Unfortunately, there are no current available targeted treatments for traumatic brain injuries which makes it important to identify the process that could enable recreation and multiplications of these NG2-glia-cells.
