Here, we build upon our earlier work incorporating a CHESS pulse into a STEAM sequence by presenting a new method for analyzing and interpreting motion data collected from three age groups: healthy young (HY), healthy middle-aged (HM), and healthy elderly (HE). Our results show that listed in increasing order of motion during a 1H MRS STEAM spectroscopy examination: HY, HM, and HE.
