The parallel acquisition of brain images is standard nowadays. A wide range of coils offering specialized solutions to problems in clinical diagnosis, preclinical science and research already exists but to proceed with the imaging of the human brain for the Human Connectome Project a 60 Channel Receive Array Coil for ex-vivo brainslices at 3 Tesla was constructed. This coil was developed for research purposes only, but other applications, especially in pathology or clinical applications, are possible out of the design.
