GABA is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter of the brain and is believed to be implicated in various psychiatric diseases. Due to its low concentration, obtaining sufficient SNR during acquisition is mandatory to ensure reliable GABA measurements. In this work we compare the SNR of GABA editing sequences applied to 3T and 7T and observed an twofold increase in SNR for GABA.
