First-of-its-kind research has shown that imaging an individual’s unique brain profile might predict adolescent mental health issues. Australian University of Sunshine Coast researchers has monitored brain changes during adolescence. The results underscore the significance of longitudinal neuroimaging for monitoring teenage mental health. One in four young individuals in Australia fulfills the threshold for likely severe mental illness. Researchers have discovered that each region of the human brain has a distinct profile of inter-regional signals that become increasingly individualized and specialized with age.

Ninety-two percent of individuals had their functional connectomes or unique brain “fingerprints,” confirming the existence of 12-year-olds with synchronization of the whole brain (or CON). Four months later, there was a significant negative relationship between CON uniqueness and eventual psychological unpleasantness.
