This study aimed to characterize the metabolic alterations in the thalamus throughout the disease course of Theiler's murine encephalomyelitis virus (TMEV) in mice using 9.4T MRS, and relate the findings to the known effects of microglia activation on neurotransmitter homeostasis. Our study confirmed that TMEV models metabolite alterations in Multiple Sclerosis. Dynamics of neurotransmitter imbalance suggest that early thalamic dyshomeostatis is driven by neuronal loss in basal ganglia input.
