Healthy Adolescent Brain Development

The human brain is a mystery, an unknowable enigma that no mere mortal could ever hope to comprehend in a million years. Right? Well, eh, not really. You might be surprised to know that experts have a pretty good grasp about how the brain evolves during adolescence.
One of those experts is Dr. Susan Tapert, a neuroscience researcher, professor, and Associate Vice Chair of Academic Affairs at the University of California, San Diego.

Getting a good night’s sleep? Yep. Practicing good nutrition? Naturally. Engaging in challenging and intellectual activities? Absolutely.
