The aim of this study was the analysis of motor cortex
metabolism dynamics during period of BOLD response to
fMRI motion task. The BOLD signal demonstrated maximum
at the 6th sec after target stimulus for both patient
and control groups, with lower intensity for
schizophrenia patients. For control group, NAA decreased
at the 12th second after fMRI motion task presentation
and recovered to the initial value at the 15th second.
Patient group demonstrates different dynamics of NAA in
motor cortex with smaller NAA intensity changes.
