Why does a child grow up with an easy to use teenager?
Why is it so hard to drag him out of bed in the morning?
Why does he often take on risky behaviors?
I've taken the joke that teenagers are brainless creatures. They don't think rationally, they can't assess risks, everything is black and white for them. Parents clench their teeth and repeat: "He'll grow out of it." What makes adolescence so sensitive? In other words, what is hidden in a teenager's brain?
The award-winning neuroscientist professor Sarah-Jayne Blakemore explains what is happening in the brain of adolescents. The many years of work of her research team have shown that adolescence is a time of extraordinary developmental sensitivity, but at the same time of exceptional creativity that should be deeply understood and appreciated. Because although sometimes a teenager seems to be looking for a hole in the whole, he just has to... invent himself.
Sarah-Jayne Blakemore: professor at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience London University College, he conducts research on brain development during adolescence and social cognition in autism. Winner of the Royal Society Insight Investment Science Book Prize. Earlier this award was won by Stephen Hawking and Bill Bryson..
