Puneet Bagga, Anup N. Chugani, Komanduri S. Varadarajan and Anant B. Patel In vivo NMR studies of regional cerebral energetics in MPTP model of Parkinson's disease: recovery of cerebral metabolism with acute levodopa treatment Journal of Neurochemistry 127
Cerebral atrophy, neurometabolite homeostasis, and neural energetics have been evaluated in an MPTP model of Parkinson's disease using MRI, in vivo 1H MRS and 1H-[13C]-NMR spectroscopy, respectively. MPTP treatment led to reduced paw grip strength and neuronal function. Acute Levodopa treatment was able to recover the diminished motor function and cerebral function.
