Abstract
This study applied H-1-MRS in the thalamus of schizophrenic patients and he althy subjects. There were no differences in the metabolite ratios (NAA/Cr, Cho/Cr or ml/Gr) between the two groups. Relationships were noted between NAA/Cr and age in patients with a trend toward this correlation in controls , suggesting an effect of age on the metabolism of the thalamus.
