Teenagers and their parents will find much to fascinate them in this updated edition of Nicola Morgan’s skilful, non-scientists explanation of the complex and specific science that makes teenagehood such a specific period of growing up.

New research has revealed even more about the workings of the brain and it appears that teenagers are wired somewhat differently. That’s especially true when it comes to sleep – as all parents of teens know well! It is also true in regard to the taking of risks and to the taking of stimulants.

Tests and quizzes and lots of illustrations support the scientific but jargon free text.

Synopsis

Blame My Brain: The Amazing Teenage Brain Revealed by Nicola Morgan

During the teenage years the brain is undergoing its most radical and fundamental change since the age of two.

Nicola Morgan's carefully researched, accessible and humorous examination of the ups and downs of the teenage brain has chapters dealing with powerful emotions, the need for more sleep, the urge to take risks, the difference between genders and the reasons behind addiction or depression.

The revised edition of this classic book contains important new research, including information about the discovery of mirror neurons and their effect on the teenage brain.

It was shortlisted for the 2006 Royal Society's Aventis Prize for Science Books.

Reviews

It is very rare that an author succeeds in writing a book for teenagers which is also a 'must read for their parents and teachers. The Scotsman
