Introduction NAA (N-acetyl-aspartate) is the second most abundant molecule in the CNS (after glutamate), its MRS signal is commonly used as a putative marker of viable neurones, and yet little is known about its function. Furthermore, recent data from cell culture has raised the possibility of an additional cellular contribution of NAA from nonneuronal… CONTINUE READING
