    Project Work
    Understanding the Adolescent Brain
    by Erica Westly
    This project will consist of pieces that explore the idea of adolescence as a unique stage, both biologically and psychologically. Some stories will describe specific psychiatric disorders that affect adolescents, such as social anxiety, while others will be about how newer research technologies like neuroimaging are being used to figure out how teens think and make decisions.
