A healthy transition from adolescence to adulthood relies on a continuous individual adaptation to a dynamic environment. Here, we employed data driven multivariate approaches to derive both general cognitive and psychopathology factors as well as brain phenotypes in children and adolescents in the publicly available PNC sample. We identified a distinct brain white matter pattern which proved central for prediction of heritable cognition and psychopathology scores, highlighting the importance of fronto-temporal connections for intellectual and mental development.
