Hormonal changes during adolescence will give rise to mood swings and frequent changes in temperament as teens are still learning how to control and express emotions in an adult way.
Adolescent brains are undergoing significant growth and development. The rational part of a teen’s brain (prefrontal cortex) is the last part of the brain to be fully developed. This is the part of the brain that helps to make good judgments and understand long-term consequences for actions. It is not fully developed until 25yrs or so. Consequently, teenagers are prone to risk-taking behaviour as their brain seeks new experiences and makes new connections.
