We investigated the changes in correlation between mouse brain metabolites due to acute restraint stress using magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS). Acquired time series MRS data of the control and acute stress groups were quantified using LCModel. Correlation coefficients between metabolites were calculated from time series metabolite concentration and metabolite pairs with statistically significant correlations were selected using one-sample Sign Test ( p < 0.05 ). We found that Gln-GSH, NAA-Glu and NAA-GSH showed new significant correlations in the acute stress group. Our findings suggest that correlation can be a useful measurement in assessing the effects of stress.
