A dedicated 7 Tesla coil array for bilateral high-resolution fMRI of the temporal lobe is presented. 4 transceiver and 12 receiver-only loop coils were realized within a slim FDM molded housing. Excellent decoupling between the transceiver and receiver arrays was achieved allowing for on coil preamplifiers.
