The Teenage Brain Under Construction

2019-06-05 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

Speaker: Dr. Jean Clinton, Clinical Professor, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences, McMaster University

Over the past decade neuroscience has finally been able to shed light on why teenagers do the things they do!

This presentation will explore what has been learned about brain development and how the environment and experience plays a key role in this development.

The rise of mental illness among our Canadian youth, risk taking, novelty seeking, and risk of substance abuse will be explored.

This event is hosted by Lifelong Learning Niagara.
