The present study aimed to use in vivo MRS to track the long term changes and consequences of purified neural progenitor cells (NPCs) in the brain. Following transplantation, there were signal intensity changes over time at the 1.28 ppm along with the NAA signal, which may represent the variations of the functional status of the NPC biomarker.
