This Is Your Brain On Teen


We have so many questions, just about the place where Dr. Abigail Baird works.  Really, the Laboratory for Adolescent Science?  It is INDEED a study of adolescents, not immature science.   

Dr. Baird focuses on reasoning and decision-making, and how these skills develop as we age (we hope). 

Jokes aside, Abigail has worked to abolish the death penalty for juvenile lawbreakers.  She is a guest on a recent edition of National Geographic TV's "Brain Games" (Feb. 28), and our guest today.
