This study was to investigate the regional neurochemical profile of APP-PS1 in the mouse brain of early-stage Alzheimers disease (AD) using 1H HR-MAS. Compared to the wild-type mice, the memory index (MI, behavioral test result) of the APP-PS1 mice at 18 weeks was not significantly different; however, the MI of the APP-PS1 mice at 35 weeks was significantly lower. The results of 1H HR-MAS showed that the [NAA+ Acet] level of the APP-PS1 mice decreased in the hippocampus and temporal cortex, mIns and sIns level was increased in the entire brain which are frontal, occipital, parietal cortex, hippocampus and thalamus.
