This picture shows a strong serotonin immunoreactivity in the thoracic rat spinal cord white matter following a two-month dietary regimen high in Vitamin E. The increase in serotonin levels induced by Vitamin E was observed in control/sham rats and it was sustained even following spinal cord injury (SCI). These data support the hypothesis that elevated levels of serotonin mediate at least in part the improved functional recovery shown in rats receiving a diet rich in Vitamin E. The study proposes the use of Vitamin E to improve recovery from SCI and associated complications by therapeutically targeting serotonin levels. View the paper here.
