Samenvatting (EN)

Ultrahigh magnetic field scanners (7 and 9.4 Tesla) have the potential to improve spatial and contrast specificity of functional brain imaging far beyond the possibilities at lower field strengths. This allows unprecedented investigation of functional properties and organizations of the human brain at the level of cortical columns and cortical layers. Understanding these organisations is at the heart of understanding human behaviour and cognition, as they are basic components in excitation, inhibition, and general information transfer at the neural population level. In order to exploit these possibilities, we request optimized multi-channel radio frequency (RF) coils. The coil infrastructure will become part of the currently implemented ?Brains Unlimited? facilities (7 and 9.4 Tesla scanners) and will be used by a large range of national and international research groups.
