Initial experience with seven tesla magnetic resonance spectroscopy of hypothalamic GABA during hyperinsulinemic euglycemia and hypoglycemia in healthy humans.

Abstract:

PURPOSE: Hypothalamic GABA signaling has been shown to regulate the hormonal response to hypoglycemia in animals. The hypothalamus is a challenging brain region for magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) due to its small size and central location. To investigate the feasibility of measuring GABA in the hypothalamus in humans, ultra-high field MRS was used. METHODS: GABA levels in the hypothalamus and occipital cortex (control region) were measured in healthy volunteers during euglycemia and hy...
