To determine the regional distributions of metabolites from different lobar regions of brain in a cohort of healthy individuals in late adolescence and early adulthood, a total of 19 subjects (mean age=22) underwent 3D-echoplanar spectroscopic imaging. The parametric maps of N-acetylaspartate (NAA), creatine (tCr), choline (tCho), myoinositol (mI) and glutamate/glutamine (Glx) were generated using sophisticated post-processing steps. These maps were normalized to MNI atlas. Significant spatial variations in metabolite ratios of NAA/tCr, tCho/tCr, mI/tCr and Glx/tCr were observed across different lobar regions of brain. These findings will undergird future efforts to understand metabolite distributions in neurodevelopmental disorders.
