Steven Emerson SID: 25456621 In my topical essay I will be discussing a number of things that are related to the development of the adolescent brain and how substances such as alcohol and marijuana affect such development. First, I shall give a brief overview of how the brain changes and develops during the adolescent years and, if healthy, how the brain should look during these stages. Then, I shall discuss how alcohol and marijuana can alter this development in significant ways. Finally, I shall discuss the potential effects of these alterations on the further development of the brain as well as the effects in the context of how a healthy brain functions vs. how an unhealthy one functions. This topic is interesting to me because it has wide reaching ramifications in how we perceive alcohol and marijuana use in teens (a group of which I am a part). Furthermore, I have always been interested in how the brain develops and what stimuli it responds to during this development so this topic seemed a good choice.

    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.
