Proton MRS is employed to assess the effect of systemic administration of aripiprazole and riluzole on the neurochemical profile of distinct functional regions in juvenile rat brain non-invasively in vivo. In this study, a dedicated optimized STEAM sequence with single-shot phase and frequency correction, and image-based shimming was applied to quantify subtle changes in the brain metabolites concentration during drug treatment in an ADHD rat model.
