The Teenage Brain

A World of Their Own

Streaming Video - 2009
Rate this:
As the brain begins teeming with hormones, the prefrontal cortex, the center of reasoning and impulse control, is still a work in progress. This program explores the neurological reasons behind the unwieldy hallmarks of adolescence-poor judgment, roiling emotions, and burning compulsions-as well as particular mental health issues. Addressing questions about the typically heavy sleep requirements of teenagers, the film also looks at schizophrenia in the adolescent brain-a problem that exists across all cultural and geographic borders.
