This lecture is part of a series of lectures on “Scientific Truths” organised by Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias in collaboration with the British Council.
The neuroscientist Saz Ahmed, doctor in Psychology, Developmental Group, Institute Cognitive Neuroscience (University College of London), reveals how the physical changes that occur in our brain during adolescence manifest themselves in the behavior of teenages, and explains why these changes occur and how they establish the plan for our self-identity and the adults we become.
In this conference, she explores what makes the teenage brain different. What drives groups of teenages to participate in risky behaviors and search for novelties? What impact do experience and environmental factors have on the development of the teenage brain?
The conference will be given in English with simultaneous translation.
