Adolescence is a period of life characterised by physical changes in our brains, laying down the blueprint for our self-identity and the adults we become. We look at the impact the brain, puberty and the environment may have on our behaviour, cognitive functioning and mental health. We consider what drives teenagers to engage in risky behaviours, and conduct our own experiment using the Balloon Analogue Risk Task.
