Prerequisites for the quantification of cerebral metabolite concentrations by NMR are a proper assignment of pertinent resonances and the identification of components with overlapping signals. The purpose of this study is to more closely examine the nature of the strong N-acetyl methyl signal that is observed in 'H NMR spectra of mammalian brain and commonly ascribed to N-acetylaspartate (NAA). It complements a previous publication on resonance assignments in short-echo time, localized 'H NMR… CONTINUE READING
