The Teenage Brain
A Neuroscientist's Survival Guide to Raising Adolescents and Young AdultsBook - 2015
Offers a look at the brains of adolescents, providing insights--including why smart kids often do stupid things--and practical advice for adults and teens. Interweaving easy-to-follow scientific data with anecdotes drawn from her experiences as a parent, clinician, and public speaker, Dr. Jensen explores adolescent brain functioning and development, including learning and memory, and investigates the impact of influences such as drugs, multitasking, sleep, and stress. Emotionally stressful situations in adolescence can have permanent effects on mental health, and may lead to higher risk for certain neuropsychiatric disorders such as depression.
