  • Background: On proton magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (1H MRSI), there is a decrease in cerebellar N-acetylaspartate/total creatine (NAA/tCr) in essential tremor (ET), signifying cerebellar neuronal dysfunction or degeneration. Harmane, which is present in the human diet, is a potent tremor-producing neurotoxin. Blood harmane concentrations seem to be elevated in ET. Objectives: To assess in patients with ET whether blood harmane concentration is correlated with cerebellar NAA/tCR, a… CONTINUE READING
