A full understanding of brain development requires not only the knowledge of development-related cellular-level changes and neural processing of individual brain regions but also changes in connectivity between regions. Early postmortem studies have laid the foundation of cell and brain structures as well as their developmental profiles. More recently, neuroimaging tools such as magnetic resonance imaging have significantly expanded to study brain development in vivo. With noninvasive functional neuroimaging methods, dynamics of brain function and interregional interactions have also been mapped at whole brain level. This chapter reviews the literature on brain development-related changes in connectivity architecture in both human and animals.
