From birth to early adulthood the brain undergoes dramatic modifications resulting in network development and optimization. In the present study we investigate the development of the human connectome but measuring myelination trajectories of individual connections over the entire brain structural network using high b-value diffusion imaging and tractography. We found significant changes in several network measures that support increased integration and efficiency. We also observe that the network doesn't myelinate at a uniform rate but with different myelination speeds dependant on the type of cortex.
