Unlocking The Mysteries Of Teenage Brains

Sep 26, 2016

Ever wonder what's going on in your teenager's mind? You may be about to find out a lot more. The University of Vermont is taking a leading role in a massive national study into the developing brains of 10,000 adolescents.

We're talking with UVM researchers about the study and the questions it hopes to answer about the development of the teenage brain. 

Alexandra Potter joins us; she's co-principal investigator on the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development study. We're also joined by Matt Albaugh, a postdoctoral research associate on the ABCD study. 

Also on the program, we talk with the winner of the 2016 Vermont Book Award, poet Major Jackson.
