“The Teenage Brain” by Dr. Francis Jensen

Have you ever been curious about the teenage brain? Or felt frustrated when trying to understand the behavior of your teenager or young adult? Neuroscientist Dr. Frances Jensen, the chair of the Neurology department at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, is the author of the fascinating book “The Teenage Brain.” In “The Teenage Brain,” she provides clear and well-researched answers as to why teenagers are especially impulsive, moody, and not very good at responsible decision-making.
