Background: Postnatal development of cerebral structure and function involves regional alteration of the neurochemical profile , which can reflect the degree of differentiation and be affected by psychopathological conditions and disorders of the central nervous system . A recent study on the development of the mouse brain  reported alterations in NAA, Tau, total creatine and total glutamate plus glutamine (Glx) concentrations some brain regions. The present study investigated non-invasively the development of the full neurochemical profile in the frontal and occipital cortex of mice, using in vivo H NMR spectroscopy.
