We describe here an 8-channel Transmit-Receive (TxRx) array, consisting of 8 loop elements, placed with dodecahedral symmetry at a safe distance from the average human head. The design was modeled after a previously proposed coil (ref) which was designed to allow for full brain coverage as well as variation along all three directions, x, y, and z. It has been modified here to better fit around the head and to balance all areas of each element at a precise distance from the subject.
