Rates of extreme-prematurity are increasing worldwide. Neuroimaging studies allow us to investigate the underlying tissue substrate of the broader neuropsychological differences observed in preterm cohorts; but the long-term neuroimaging phenotype of extremely-preterm adolescents is relatively unknown. Here we investigate resting-state functional MRI to establish if there is a variability in the pattern of functional networks in extremely-preterm born 19 year-olds relative to a group of their term-born peers.
