The human brain undergoes rapid growth in both structure and function from infancy through early childhood, which significantly influences cognitive and behavioral development in later life. A newly emerging research framework, developmental connectomics, provides unprecedented opportunities for exploring the developing brain through non-invasively mapping structural and functional connectivity patterns. Within this framework, we review recent neuroimaging and neurophysiological studies investigating the connectome development from 20 postmenstrual weeks to 5 years of age. Specifically, we highlight five fundamental principles of brain network development during...
