More on the teen brain and understanding of risk

An article in TIME Healthland presents some interesting new research from NYU, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, on how teens process and understand risk.  They really are very different in this developmental stage, and understanding their way of dealing with experiences gives us insight into why they do some of the things they do.  Good reading for all of you working with teens.
