Explores the unique potentials and vulnerabilities of the teenage brain
The present special topic issue focuses on the role of environmental influences encountered during teenage years on the structure, biochemistry and function of the mature brain. It represents a unique compilation of articles by leading experts in the fields of psychology, neurobiology, genetics, neurology and psychiatry. The papers span a wide range from animal models, epidemiology and molecular biology to advanced human functional neuroimaging. Three new studies offer unprecedented insights into brain mechanisms that may predispose teenage boys to risky behavior and an unhealthy disregard for disincentives and punishment. The publication brings together perspectives of experts on the critical importance of the interaction of the teenage brain with the ever-changing and complex physical, social and intellectual environment in shaping the adult brain and mind.
The publication is not only highly recommended to neuroscientists, psychiatrists, pediatricians, psychologists, social workers and health-related professionals, but also to anybody who wishes to gain an insight into the unique potentials and vulnerabilities of the teenage brain and teenage behavior.
