This website and blog is about the use of magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) in neuroscience, and will range from acquisition to analysis and interpretation. I hope to discuss several issues that commonly crop up in MRS analysis and which therefore impact on the interpretation of the results obtained. I also plan to discuss current “trends” in MRS research and interesting and some times not so interesting papers. I hope that for the most part this blog will be educational, providing a place to expand upon questions I often get asked by researchers new to MRS – and store those responses to use as a future reference to save me typing it all out again the next time I get asked ;-).
The blog will also at times contain my musings on what we can and can not do with MRS (at present) and what it may or may not be able to tell us about the brain in health and disease. These will be the musings of someone who considers himself an eternal student, so feel free to let me know if you disagree with anything I say, I’m always keen to learn. I just ask that all commenters remember the educational goal for this blog and that comments are kept civil and advance the conversation in an effective and educational manner.
