Dysmyelinating diseases are characterized by abnormal myelin formation and function. Such microstructural abnormalities in myelin have been demonstrated to produce measurable effects on the MR signal. This work examines these effects from post-mortem fixed control and shiverer mouse brains on voxel-wise, high-resolution water spectra acquired using a multi-gradient echo pulse sequence. Results demonstrate that components of the spectra are differentially affected by myelin concentration. This suggests that water proton spectra may be sensitive to the tissue microenvironment, specifically myelin, and could serve as potential MRI based biomarkers of dysmyelinating diseases.
