Comment about this post:

I think how the brain works and the reasons as to why we think and act a certain way are very intriguing. The book dives deeper into the adolescent brain, and this was a part of the chapter I thoroughly enjoyed learning about. One think that somewhat shocked me from the reading was the comment of how structure wise the differences between male and female brains are very small. That being said the awkward time of change and puberty can have an affect on the way we use our brains. Another aspect I found shocking was brain plasticity. The book mentions how in the first 3 years of life the brain is quite malleable, meaning its more easily shaped. It also seems that scientist are discovering a possible second wave of brain plasticity during adolescence.
