Title: TEENAGE BRAIN: A WORLD OF THEIR OWN
Movie ID: VT5539
Movie Number: 5539
Description: New research has shown that during puberty, when the brain begins teeming with hormones, the pre-frontal cortex, the center of reasoning and impulse control is still a work in progress. For the first time, scientists can offer an explanation for what parents already know--adolescnece is a time of roiling emotions and poor judgement. As the brain matures, teenagers also fact special risks--from addictive drugs and alcohol that can hijack the brain--to the chaos of schizophrenia, which strikes most often during adolescnece.

"Lake Superior State is the only robotics program of its kind in the country. I can work up any research or senior project idea with a professor or my advisor. I studied for a year in Japan through LSSU's connection with the Japan Center for Michigan Universities, and became fluent in Japanese. A Japanese company called Fanuc makes most of the robots in our lab. I'd like to roll my senior research project into a career with Fanuc that bridges the two countries and cultures."
