Evolution of the neurochemical profile in the frontal and occipital cortex of the developing mouse determined by in vivo

Abstract

Background: Postnatal development of cerebral structure and function involves regional alteration of the neurochemical profile [1], which can reflect the degree of differentiation and be affected by psychopathological conditions and disorders of the central nervous system [2]. A recent study on the development of the mouse brain [3] 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.
