OBJECTIVE Altered concentrations of the brain metabolites, including N-acetyl-aspartate (NAA) and myo-inositol (MI), may indicate neurotoxicity associated with drug abuse. In this study, the authors explored differences in brain metabolites between abstinent methamphetamine (MA) abusers and healthy comparison subjects and the associations between metabolite concentrations and clinical characteristics. METHOD Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) was performed on 30 abstinent MA abusers… CONTINUE READING
