Description

By combining information from neuroimaging studies with evidence from animal research, psychological research, epidemiology and histology, we can piece together the major developments, and relate these to typical adolescent behaviours. There is immense potential for the fields of health, education and law to learn from this growing knowledge of the adolescent brain. Conversely, in this relatively young field of adolescent neuroscience, there are many important questions as yet unanswered. This book describes what we know about the adolescent brain from a neuroscience perspective to increase knowledge and understanding among students and professionals.show more
