Simultaneous use of EEG and fMRI at high fields (UHF, ≥7T) offers the dual benefits of a high spatial resolution as well as the ability to study dynamic brain processes. A close fitting coil design has been built for this purpose, having open access to the subject and the EEG hardware while maintaining excellent performance characteristics. We present here the results from computer simulations of the head coil, including the EEG cap using human body models for safety validation and optimization of the design.
