Children born preterm are at a significant risk of neurodevelopmental impairment. Alterations of functional connectivity in higher-order association cortices after preterm birth might reflect cognitive or behavior problems in school-aged children born preterm. Our results will help understanding the pathophysiology of cognitive and behavior development in children born preterm without apparent brain injury or major neurodevelopmental impairment.
