Synopsis
Adolescence is a period of life characterised by hormonal, physical, psychological and social change. Recent neuroscience research has revolutionised our understanding of the adolescent brain. Brain imaging research has revealed that the cortex develope during adolescence in terms of both its structure and how it functions. Social brain regions undergo particularly protracted development in adolscence. This research might contribute to an explanation of behaviours that are typically associated with adolescence, including risk-taking and peer influence.
