Puberty occurs earlier in females (11 years) than males (13 years). _______________________ Until puberty neurons increase their connections Unused neuronal connections are lost to make other pathways more efficient ___________________________ Frontal cortex slower than limbic system development Hormonal surges and limbic system may explain teens’ occasional impulsiveness __________________________ Adolescents’ ability to reason gives them a new level of social awareness. In particular they can think about: Their own thinking. What others are thinking. And think about what others are thinking about them.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
