GABA is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter of the
brain and is believed to be implicated in various
psychiatric diseases. Due to its low concentration,
obtaining sufficient SNR during acquisition is mandatory
to ensure reliable GABA measurements. In this work we
compare the SNR of GABA editing sequences applied to 3T
and 7T and observed an twofold increase in SNR for GABA.
