Effects of PUFA supplementation evidenced by brain imaging
Department of Imaging, Hammersmith Hospital, Du Cane Road, London W12 0HS, UK
This paper describes how the effects of PUFA supplementation can be indexed by neuroimaging. The role of structural magnetic resonance imaging studies are detailed in respect of testing a brain (lipid) hypothesis and in respect of using a gold-standard image registration technique. The role of magnetic resonance spectroscopy of the brain is considered with respect to a recent advance in the analysis of 31-phosphorus neurospectroscopy data that enables motion-restricted membrane phospholipids to be quantified.
Key words: image registration / membrane phospholipids / MRI / neurospectroscopy / PUFA supplementation
