This work describes a methodology to perform reproducible functional MR spectroscopy (FMRS) experiments to study auditory processing at 7T. A processing pipeline and quality control steps are proposed to remove distortions and temporal instabilities in the dynamic experiment. The designed experiment was successfully tested, producing highly correlated results in healthy volunteers and patients with schizophrenia scanned multiple times.
