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.
