Mean number of ipsilateral target regions that the amygdala connects with in children and adults.

Each amygdala voxel’s connectivity vector to all other target regions is thresholded at 0.1, binarized, and averaged across the amygdala per individual. In children, the amygdala showed connectivity (above 0.1) to a greater number of target regions on average than adults in both left (C: 5.57±0.18, A: 4.50± 0.16) and right (C: 5.81± 0.18, A: 4.48±0.13).
