Brain temperature and timekeeping

The Brain Podcast is the official podcast of the journals Brain and Brain Communications. In this seventh episode we chat with Dr Nina Rzechorzek, lead author of the article entitled: A daily temperature rhythm in the human brain predicts survival after brain injury

We discuss how brain temperature was measured using invasive and non-invasive methods to identify a physiological daily rhythmicity. The loss of this brain temperature rhythm was strongly predictive of survival in patients with traumatic brain injury. Our longest episode to date but packed with fascinating science!

Dr Rzechorzek is an MRC Clinician Scientist, hosted at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge.
