The common marmoset is increasingly used as a non-human primate model to understand the organization of the brain. Better cross species comparisons can be achieved by adapting methods from the Human Connectome Project. Here, we show a customized 16-channel receiver coil designed for the marmoset brain and present the initial imaging results on a 3T MRI scanner with powerful gradients. The coil had high signal-to-noise ratio and B1 transmit homogeneity. In-vivo marmoset data, acquired and preprocessed using HCP-style methods, provided high-resolution images, allowing cortical mapping of myelin, thickness, and structural and functional connectivity, enabling high quality cross-species comparisons.
