In brief: Tough

I'm not sure that testing cerebral folate (folic acid) is different from blood folate (folic acid).
If you are wondering about depression and folate (folic acid) and being low in the ability to convert folate (folic acid) to l- methylfolate (folic acid), it is a trial of medication, generally. I could be wrong but a neurologist is the brain doctor. I'm not sure u need that though.
