Research identifies changes in neural circuits underlying self-control during adolescence | Science Daily

Researchers from the Lifespan Brain Institute of the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania have been working to chart brain development throughout childhood and adolescence to better understand executive function and self-control. Learning about the anomalies that affect development can provide a better way to detect mental illness and to discover how to treat them before they become problems. After analyzing and mapping multi-modal neuroimaging data from participants ages 8 to 23, results showed that area variability in structure-function combination was inversely associated to the intricacy of the function a given brain area is responsible for.
