Other Significant Metabolites. Myo-Inositol, GABA, Glutamine, and Lactate.

Abstract:

Advances in acquisition parameters have meant that an increased number of metabolites are readily quantified using magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Here we discuss the most commonly acquired of these: myo-inositol, γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA), glutamine, and lactate. Myo-inositol is commonly taken to be a marker of glial activity and abnormalities have been described in a number of neurodegenerative conditions. GABA, the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain, can be accurately quantif...
