Neuroscience of Teen Decision Making

How can we help teenagers and young adults make better more effective career decisions? It is a very complex process yet somehow it seems to be left to chance and somehow they will ‘figure’ it out! With the increasing costs of tertiary education and the multitude of earn-as-you-learn options, the whole process is more confusing than ever for young people and especially parents and guardians.

This webinar covers understanding the development of the brain from adolescence, through a phase called ‘emerging adulthood’ and onto ‘maturity’.’ Through MRI and CT scans neurologists now know there isn’t a one-size fits all method about how we should measure a mature brain or that this development is at the same rate for everyone. It would be great if there was a spot in the brain that turns blue to indicate this – but there isn’t. For many we know this now doesn’t occur at 18 (which is in many ways an arbitrary age) but is often much later possibly up to 32!
