We created high-resolution paediatric templates of the marmoset brain from infancy to puberty, producing maps of anatomical variability at different ages. We show that greatest variability is present in juveniles and corresponds well with regions in a recently described transmodal apex network of higher order association areas in the marmoset (and human) brain. We hypothesise this time-period of high variability may indicate a period of heightened vulnerability to environmental stressors which may be a causal factor in the development of mental health disorders.
