According to  Lawrence Steinberg,  why do teenagers  do so many risky  things?   Why so much risky behavior?? 1.  They don’t know about risks.  The facts.  That’s probably not true.  2.  Not incapable of logical reasoning.  Yep, again, probably not the case.   3.   This has to do with brain maturation there is late maturation of frontal lobe that controls cognitive control increased density of dopamine receptors in striatum.  More sensitivity to dopamine + late maturation: 12-14 year old!!

    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.
