The Adolescent Brain – Wired for Taking Risks

The Adolescent Brain – Wired for Taking Risks

Adolescence is a time of increased risk-taking; this paper looks at the role the brain plays in risk-taking, including adolescent substance use. It also considers some possible ways the harm of risk-taking in young people can be mitigated and notes that many adolescent risk behaviours put others in danger, making the prevention of risky behaviours among adolescents an essential public health issue (IOM & NRC, 2011). During adolescence, a key goal for those working in prevention is to reduce the harms of risk-taking, so some implications for prevention programmes will be outlined. This briefing paper forms part of a mini-series on the ‘Brain under Construction.’ and should be read alongside ‘Window on the Developing Brain‘.

The Brain Under Construction – A window into the developing brain

The Brain Under Construction – A window into the developing brain

This briefing paper is part of a mini-series on the ‘Brain Under Construction’ aimed at helping professionals better understand the young people they support. This paper looks at the structure and function of the brain and considers the uniqueness of the adolescent brain. Pictures of the brain in action show that adolescent’s brains work differently than adults and scientific research is showing that the brain systems involved in decision-making, planning, social understanding and risk-taking are developing in adolescence. This research could have implications for education, rehabilitation and intervention.
