The Development of the Teen Brain

The brain does not reach full development until mid-twenties and one of the last regions of the brain to develop is the pre-frontal cortex which is the part of the brain responsible for making executive decisions such as planning, setting priorities, controlling impulses and weighing the consequences of actions. Learn more about the stage of development that the teen and young adult brain is in at The Medical Institute for Sexual Health's website.
