Celebrate the adolescent brain, not problematise it !

Neuroscientist Professor Sarah-Jayne Blakemore is the winner of the Royal Society Science Book Prize 2018 for her book on adolescent brains.

Blakemore's mission is to convince us to celebrate the adolescent brain, not problematise it.

Cognitive neuroscientist Sarah-Jayne Blakemorecompares the prefrontal cortex in adolescents to that of adults, to show us how typically "teenage" behavior is caused by the growing and developing brain.

Let's celebrate the adolescent brain instead of problematising !
