內容簡介


大腦創造了我們擁有的所有情緒、感覺、慾望,儲存了所有的記憶,以往科學家認為,大腦在幼年時期就已發展完全,但因為近期的科技發展,已有方法可以觀測每個年齡的大腦發展,科學家們這才發現,原來大腦在青少年時期還是會繼續發展和改變。

作者Sarah-Jayne Blakemore是知名的青少年腦科學專家,已發表超過120篇的論文並且獲得許多獎項肯定。在本書中,作者將解釋青少年大腦的變化狀況,以及這些變化會對青少年的行為造成什麼影響。

其中讀者將看到:
青少年的大腦和成人和幼年有什麼不同?
為什麼乖巧的小孩,長大後卻會變成行為偏差的青少年?
為什麼青少年時期會出現很多精神疾病,例如:憂鬱、分裂症、癮症等。

作者的研究改變了大眾對青少年的看法,不僅是法律、教育都必須依此重新評估,最重要的是,許多家長也可以藉此更了解自己的青少年孩子們。

The brain creates every feeling, emotion and desire we experience, and stores every one of our memories. And yet, until very recently, scientists believed our brains were fully developed in childhood. Now, thanks to imaging technology that enables us to look inside the living human brain at all ages, we know that this isn’t so – that the brain goes on developing and changing right through adolescence into adulthood.

So what makes the adolescent brain different? What drives the excessive risk-taking or the need for intense friendships common to this age group? Why does an easy child become a challenging teenager? And why is it that many mental illnesses – depression, addiction, schizophrenia – begin during these formative years.

Drawing upon her cutting-edge research in her London laboratory, award-winning neuroscientist, Sarah-Jayne Blakemore explains what happens inside the adolescent brain, and what her team’s experiments have revealed about our behaviour, and how we relate to each other and our environment as we ?go through this period of our lives. She shows that while adolescence is a period of vulnerability, it is also a time of enormous creativity – one that should be acknowledged, nurtured and celebrated.

Our adolescence provides a lens through which we can see ourselves anew. It is fundamental to how we invent ourselves.
