Lessons From The New Science of Adolescense


Laurence Steinberg, PhD.


laurence steinberg


It's taking longer for teens to move into adulthood. The latest findings from Neuroscientists show that the 2nd developmental phase of a young person begins with puberty and now spans 15 years -- from the age of 10 to 25! "Extended Adolescence" is the new normal. But, is that a bad thing? Sexual maturity is one thing – hormones are hormones. But research reveals the Adolescent brain is remarkably "plastic" and susceptible to peer pressure, making psychological "self-regulation" a lengthier and more difficult process. In his latest book on Adolescence, Temple University Psychology Professor Lawrence Steinberg thinks its time that parents, schools and society at large encourage self-regulation in teens so they can not just survive...but thrive and mature into happy, well-adjusted Adults.

The Surprising Truth About When, Where, Why It Happens


Benedict Carey

Award-winning New York Times Science Reporter

benedict carey


Cognitive Science says our brains are "selective learners", retaining information only if it's considered relevant, interesting or useful to us now or in the future. So, for some of us, really buckling down and studying to learn something new can be a challenge! In his new book, New York Times Science Reporter Benedict Carey overturns our conventional notions about the best study habits and provides key tools to improve our study habits. It turns out that routine is bad, so varying where you study is good. When and how long you hit the books is important, too. Oh, and one of the most important learning tools of all? A good night's sleep!
