The effect of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) on the values of the cerebral pH in the region of the posterior cingulate cortex was studied. pH was determined by analyzing the chemical shifts of mobile protons in the aromatic region of the spectrum of histidine, homocarnosine, resonating at ~7-8 ppm in PRESS spectra. According to our data, the pH value decreases by ~1% in posterior cingulate cortex after acute mTBI.
