The Adolescent Brain: Learning, Reasoning, and Decision Making
This volume brings together an interdisciplinary group of leading scientists to examine how the adolescent brain develops, and how this development impacts various aspects of reasoning and decision-making, from the use and function of memory and representation, to judgment, mathematical problem-solving, and the construction of meaning.
The contributors ask questions that seek to uncover the basic mechanisms underlying brain development in adolescence, such as:
- How do the concepts of proof and reasoning emerge?
- What is the relationship between cognitive and procedural understanding in problem-solving?
- How can researchers build assessments to capture and describe learning over time?
