OBJECTIVE To examine the possible neurotoxic effects of prenatal methamphetamine exposure on the developing brain using 1H-MRS. METHODS Methamphetamine-exposed children (n = 12) and age-matched unexposed control subjects (n = 14) were evaluated with MRI, localized 1H-MRS, and a Child Behavior Checklist. Metabolite concentrations of N-acetyl-containing… CONTINUE READING
