A particularly interesting one: what's unique about the brain during adolescence?</p><p>During adolescence our brains are wired differently than adult brains will be&nbsp;–&nbsp;and for good reason. In adolescence our brains are in a process of development – so we’re less inhibited, allowing us to take the risks we need to learn about the world.
