The Teenage Brain
By: Caitlin Colenburg
How does the brain change in the teenage years?
Where in your teenage brain are the changes occurring?
The brain changes mostly in the cortex which is located in the outer layer of the brain .
What might these changes mean in terms of how you think, learn, and behave?
-Mood Swings: This usually affects the teens relationships and personality .
-Bad Decision Making : Because the brain isn't fully developed many teens tend to make poor decisions during this time in their lives .
