Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) is a non-invasive imaging technique that allows quantification of a number of neurochemicals. MRS is used in clinical neuroscience as a method for investigating brain neurochemistry, critical to understanding neurological and psychiatric disease. Improved acquisition and analysis approaches have increased interest in its use both for traditional clinical applications and for neuroscience research, and as a result a reference text aimed not at physicists but at experts in the application of MRS (neuroscientists, neurologists, psychiatrists, radiologists) is much needed.Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy for Neuroscientists and Clinicians covers how MRS is acquired, what it is possible to measure with the technique, application to common research and clinical questions, the circumstances in which MRS can add significantly to our understanding of the brain, and limitations of the technique. Chapters are authored by experts in each topic area, and the book is written with a non-expert audience in mind.
