In current study, we used a network growth charting method to map the normative maturational trajectories of major functional network activity in both grey matter and white matter. A quadratic maturation trajectory of functional activity was observed in DMN, SMN and FPN for both grey matter and white matter. The coherent maturational trajectory between these grey matter and white matter network suggests the corresponding refinements of brain network function plays an important role in improvements in higher-order cognitive abilities during normative adolescent development.
