Knowing How Your Brain Works
During your teenage years, the prefrontal cortex of your brain is growing and changing faster than any time since
you were three years. The prefrontal cortex is in the front of your brain and enables you to predict logical
outcomes, solve problems, make sound decisions, and control your behavior. This is the area of your brain that will
enable you to function successfully as an independent adult. These rapid changes to your brain make it easier for
you to learn new skills and ways of thinking.
