More on The Adolescent Brain

Here are two more resources on understanding the adolescent brain —

(1) the "Secrets of the teenage brain: A psychologist's guide for teachers" by Bradley Busch from The Guardian website. . . and

(2) Sarah-Jayne Blakemore's TED Talk "The Mysterious Workings of the Adolescent Brain."
I love Blakemore's closing remark. It really captures how we should understand adolescent development — here is what she says,

“So what's sometimes seen as the problem with adolescents — heightened risk-taking, poor impulse control, self-consciousness — shouldn't be stigmatized. It actually reflects changes in the brain that provide an excellent opportunity for education and social development.”
