Abstract: The increased signal to noise and BOLD sensitivity at 7T can be traded for spatial resolution of functional imaging. Hence, 7T has really opened new doors for the field of cognitive neuroscience, where (very) small brain regions can now be studied. In this talk, I will present some of the methods we developed to best use the advantages of 7T and that have allowed us to achieve these high spatial resolutions, as well as the fine-scaled activation maps we have acquired with them.
