Description

Until very recently, scientists believed our brains were fully developed in childhood. Now, thanks to imaging technology we know that the brain goes on developing and changing right through adolescence into adulthood. So, what makes the adolescent brain different? Why does an easy child become a challenging teenager? And why is it that many mental illnesses begin during these formative years. Drawing upon her cutting-edge research, award-winning neuroscientist, Sarah-Jayne Blakemore explains how adolescence is fundamental to how we invent ourselves.

Professional reviews

"“Sane, wise, myth busting, this book is a triumph and should be read by every parent and teacher but they should be warned. They’ll have to fight their teenagers to get this gripping book out of their hands.” VIVIENNE PARRY OBE “Finally, a book about the adolescent brain written by someone who actually does the science! In this highly readable, ground-breaking book Blakemore takes us not only into the minds of teenagers, but into the minds of the people who study them.” LAURENCE STEINBERG Award-winning neuroscientist Sarah-Jayne Blakemore has revolutionised the way we think about the brain. In her exciting book debut, she explains the adolescent brain, its transformations, and how it ultimately shapes the adults we become."
