As currently used, a region of brain is chosen for analysis and magnetic resonance frequency sequences are applied that detect signals from the relaxation of the electrochemical bonds of various constituents of brain tissue. The main ones are choline and N-acetyl aspartate (NAA); the choline is contained mainly in cell membranes of myelin and NAA is a marker for neurons.

Normal alpha (9 to 10 per second) activity is present posteriorly (bottom channel). The top channel contains a large blink artifact.

Tests that depend on the use of treponemal antigens, including the Treponema pallidum immobilization test and the fluorescent treponemal antibody test, are more specific and assist in the interpretation of false-positive reactions.
