The aim of this work was to investigate the metabolic profile of the hippocampus in a clinical population (moderate/severe traumatic brain injury patients in the acute phase), using an MR Spectroscopy LASER sequence at 3T. With ongoing data acquisition, preliminary results show reduced levels of total choline (tCho), metabolite reflecting membrane turnover.
