In recent years there have been tremendous advances in understanding how brain development underlies changes in affective and social development in adolescence. This has led to many new insights into the behavioral changes which take place during this period, such as increases in sensation-seeking, risk taking and sensitivity to opinions of friends. This is the first comprehensive book to describe the changes in adolescent behaviour, in the domains of control, emotion, decision-making and social development, through insights from cognitive and social-affective neuroscience. It will be of great interest to students and researchers in the field of adolescent development.
