We obtained (31)P magnetic resonance spectra from the brains in vivo of 101 males (range 6-72 years). In addition, cognitive test data were obtained from 42 boys (6-13 years) and from 26 adult males (22-56 years) of this test group. Significant correlations were observed in both adults and children between various inorganic phosphate (Pi)-containing (31)P peak ratios [e.g. Pi/adenosine triphosphate (ATP)] and (predominantly verbal) cognitive tasks. No change in the Pi/ATP ratio was observed… CONTINUE READING
