By determining the neuro-functional changes that present with the psychological symptoms of mental illness, potential efficacious, targeted interventions become a possibility. Here we have shown that network dysfunction signatures present in several mental health disorders that underpin emotional regulation and social domain deficits are evident in 12-year-olds with increased psychological distress. Follow-up data from LABS mapping the functional connectome through adolescence and corresponding cognitive and psychological scores will provide valuable insight into the specific neuronal signatures and subsequent divergence pathways that underpin mental health and mental illness.
