Overview: 

For teens (grades 7–12). A collection of articles designed to teach students about the extraordinary complexities of the brain, including such topics as how drugs overload the brain's reward system; how actions in youth impact the brain's efficiencies through synaptic pruning; and why teen brains are inclined toward impulsivity and the benefits of "pausing" before making decisions. Accompanying teacher's guide also available.
