Speaker: Professor Sarah-Jayne Blakemore (University College London) Title: The social brain in adolescence

Adolescence is a period of life characterised by hormonal, physical, psychological and social change.

A Graduate School of Education seminar
Speaker(s)Professor Sarah-Jayne Blakemore (University College London)
Date25 March 2014
PlaceBaring Court 114

Recently, neuroscience research has revolutionised our understanding of the adolescent brain. Brain imaging research has revealed that the brain develops during adolescence in terms of both its structure and how it functions. Social brain regions undergo particularly protracted development in adolescence. This research might contribute to an explanation of behaviours that are typically associated with adolescence, including risk-taking and peer influence.

This seminar will not be recorded.

Intended audienceStaff and students from Exeter University, visitors from other educational institutions and partnership schools.
