This week Alex Hassett discusses how brain research may help us understand the teenagers in our lives

In this podcast we have the audio from our most recent public lecture. Our own Dr Alex Hassett talks about understanding an often mysterious and sometimes troubling group for many of us: teenagers. Drawing on recent research in neuroscience, Alex talks about key areas where teenage brains are different from adult ones, how this may help to explain some very familiar behaviours and, crucially, how the rest of us can respond helpfully.
