    Reportage Online

    Eighteen year-old Yasmine Wright lays sprawled out on the porch, taking a moment’s rest, outside a house where she partied with friends on January 1, 2011 in Austin, Texas. New narratives in neuroscience and behavioral psychology hold that the teenage brain is not an underdeveloped version of the adult brain (as previously thought) but is in fact highly nuanced and perfectly adapted for the challenges of adolescents (particularly in the prehistoric era). Whereas other animals may only take a year or two to develop from infancy into the adult brain, the human mammal has a full twenty-four years of neurological malleability before it fully matures.
