Brain imaging shows brain differences in risk-taking teens

Brain differences associated with risk-taking teens have been investigated by researchers who found that connections between certain brain regions are amplified in teens more prone to risk. «Our brains have an emotional-regulation network that exists to govern emotions and influence decision-making,» explained the study’s lead author. «Antisocial or risk-seeking behavior may be associated with an imbalance in this network.»
