Catalyst - Teen Brain
With a spate of teen bashings, teen road death, and plain incomprehensible teen behaviour, many people are wondering about teenagers today. Scientists used to blame the hormones – while society blamed the parents. But new research is overturning everything we understood about how teenagers think.
Surprising discoveries are not only unravelling the mysteries of teen behaviour, they are posing a challenging question for society – if the brain doesn't mature until the age of 25, at what age should we consider someone a morally culpable adult? This program pits teen son against Dad in the brain scan machine, visit a juvenile jail, and meet a few teenagers who've done some really stupid things – as we go inside the adolescent brain.
