Recent discoveries from neuroscience are now showing that from about age 12-24, there is huge burst of growth and maturity of body and brain of human beings. It is a period of great learning, exploration, thinking, and decision-making as well as of frustration, confusion, risky behaviors and turmoil. The new findings show that the brain develops from the lower limbic brain to the top, pre-frontal cortex (PFC). In essence, our emotional brain develops before the “executive” brain. However, the journey that s/he must navigate is filled with both opportunities and dangers. An important point to note is that the recent findings from the science of adolescent brain are overturning decades of established theories in science itself.
