Editorial Reviews

Review

''Marvelous . . . Dr. Jensen uses her considerable expertise as a neuroscientist and a mother to explain the recent explosion of adolescent brain research and how this research can help us better understand and help young people.'' --Carol A. Ford, MD, president, Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine; professor of pediatrics, University of Pennsylvania; and chief, Division of Adolescent Medicine at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

''Frances Jensen has brilliantly translated academic science and clinical studies . . . A 'must read' for parents, teachers, school nurses, and many others who live with or interact with teens.'' --S. Jean Emans, MD, chief, Division of Adolescent/Young Adult Medicine, Boston Children's Hospital; professor of pediatrics, Harvard Medical School --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Inside Flap

For many years, scientists believed that the adolescent brain was essentially an adult one. Over the last decade, however, neurology and neuroscience have revealed that the teen years encompass vitally important stages of brain development.

Interweaving clear summary and analysis of research data with anecdotes drawn from her years as a clinician, researcher, and public speaker, renowned neurologist Frances E. Jensen, MD, explores adolescent brain functioning and development in the context of learning and multitasking, stress and memory, sleep, addiction, and decision making.

The Teenage Brain explains how these eye-opening findings not only dispel commonly held myths about teens but also yield practical suggestions for adults and teenagers negotiating the mysterious and magical world of adolescent biology.

"It's charming to see good science translate directly into good parenting."--New York Times Book Review

"This well-written, accessible work...offers support and a way for parents to understand and relate to their own soon-to-be-adult offspring."--Publishers Weekly

--New York Times Book Review --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
