The Adolescent Brain

Posted on

When children reach adolescence, their brains are about the size of adult brains, but, of course, those brains have not fully matured. While it is easy to blame raging hormones – and in fact, testosterone and estrogen do play very important roles in brain development – there are other developmental processes going on as well. This webinar will explore what neuroscience research is telling us about the adolescent brain and help participants understand what is going on underneath the emotional outbursts, the risky behavior, and the apparent lack of judgment and thoughtful decision-making.
