We report in vivo 1 H spectroscopy of Glutamate, Glutamine, N-acetyl aspartyl glutamate (NAAG) and other metabolites in human brain using PRESS at 3T. With test- retest experiment, we present the ability to reliably detect and quantify these technically challenging metabolites. With the segmentation of gray matter and white matter, we also demonstrate variation of the metabolites in different brain regions.
