Here we present
results for the putamen over 6 years, 7 timepoints for
healthy adult controls. There were no significant
differences in the metabolite concentrations over the 7
visits, showing the validity of using these controls to
compare to pathological data of the Huntington Disease
over this timescale. The potential effects of age on
metabolite concentration were also examined.
