A new RF coil and frontend for a head-only, 1.5T fMRI system was designed, built and demonstrated. This coil features the ability for single and multichannel transceiver operation for transmit-receive switched and simultaneous transmit and receive (STAR) operation. It includes a window and an integrated shield. First applications will be for voluntary motor control studies in humans.
