Resting state-fMRI has been widely used as an effective method to evaluate the of brain functional changes in physiological and pathological process. Altered regional brain activities, especially in verbal and cognitive areas were found in children with nonsyndromic CL/P using resting-state fMRI. It helps to understand the abnormality of functional architecture of CL/P which implies different structures and cognitive patterns in CL/P compared with normal development children.
