Until today only a limited number of quantitative sex-specific is based on the same principles as MRI, an imaging technology based the body’s internal structures visualized. Both MRI and MRM use nuclear magnetic resonance, a phenomenon observed in the nuclei of atoms, when exposed to a magnetic field and pulses of radio waves. MRM uses stronger magnets to 10-100 times with a resolution 10-100 times finer than conventional MRI.

The whole brain and specific structures of the MRM data These include the amygdala, hippocampus, striatum, and lateral and third ventricles, structures that spread widely studied in humans because of their effects on cognitive and neuropsychiatric diseases. A comparison of the 3D reconstructions of each structure revealed sex-specific and age-related structural differences in the hippocampus, amygdala and chambers, but none in the striatum.. With MRM, Ahrens and his colleagues imaged the brains of male and female mice, aged 1 month and 3 months .Lead author Amy Lischko has of the former Commissioner department healthcare Finance & Policy and the former Director of Health Care Policy for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, by former Gov.
