How does perception/perspective affect everything we know or learn?
We used to think that teens respond differently to the world because of hormones, or attitude, or because they simply need independence. But when adolescents' brains are studied through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), we see that they actually work differently than adult brains.
Many teen subjects failed to interpret DIFFERENTLY…
the emotion in faces like this one as fear.
The adults correctly identified the expression
as fear. Yet the teens answered
"shocked, surprised, angry."
And the teens and adults used different parts of their
brains to process what they were feeling.
The teens mostly used the amygdala, (uh-mig-duh-luh) a
small almond shaped region that guides instinctual or
"gut“ reactions, while the adults relied on the frontal
cortex, which governs reason and planning.
