Why do teenagers behave as they do?
To answer this question we followed the same set of healthy children and teenagers over almost 10 years. Some have been with us 12 times now, completing a protocol including a MRI scanning session, tests, and questionnaires. By mapping individual structural changes in the brain as they grow up, and linking these to changes in behavior. We aim to improve our understanding of unique trajectories in brain maturation, and how such differences between people might explain difference in behavior such as drug abuse, social skills, and academic achievements.
