The aim of the present study was to examine possible gender differences in 1H brain metabolite concentrations in male and female college basketball players. Decreased total N-acetylaspartate/N- acetylaspartylglutamate (tNAA) levels within white matter tissue were observed in female basketball players with symptoms of depression or anxiety (p = 0.0256 /p = 0.0112).
