While a select few remember their adolescent years fondly, most of us want to pretend they never happened. But whether we like it or not, adolescence was the time when our brains were at the peak of their malleability and the time when we made some of our strongest memories. On this episode, Temple University Professor of Psychology Laurence Steinberg discussed the neuroscience of adolescence and how the brain changes during this formative time. He’ll also tell us how adolescence has lengthened over time and why that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
Children are the future… 😉
