Podcast: Take care of your brain now, and it will take care of you later, Frances Jensen

00:00 45:48

A neurologist and a mother: that’s how Frances Jensen, one of the most respected international researchers of the adolescent brain, defines herself. She is chair of the Neurology Department at the University of Pennsylvania. In her latest work ‘The Teenage Brain’. “Teenagers are learning machines,” states this neurologist, although she qualifies that “they learn both the good and the bad equally well.” From her privileged position as a scientist, teacher, and mother, Jensen explores and dispels myths about adolescence and provides practical advice on how to get through this complex stage of life.
