Teenage-brain

Teenagers are often portrayed as thrill-seekers, but research suggests their brains are wired to learn from their experiences, which makes them better prepared for adulthood.

In a small study, they performed better than adults at a picture-based game and brain scans showed a higher level of brain activity.

Researchers said the role of the hippocampus in the brain was key.
