The developing brain has to adapt to environmental and intrinsic insults after extremely preterm (EPT) birth. Ongoing maturational processes maximize their fit to the environment and this can provide a substrate for neurodevelopmental failures. Resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging was used to scan 33 children born EPT, at
