Zooming in on the brains of babies

New tools are helping neuroscientists investigate why early life is such a crucial time for neural development

Teens can have excellent executive function — just not all the time

Adolescents’ brains are highly capable, if inconsistent, during this critical age of exploration and development. They are also acutely tuned into rewards.

Emotions get better with age

As people grow older, they gain greater control of their feelings. How do they do that — and can they teach young whippersnappers a thing or two?

The series “Inside the brain: A lifetime of change” is supported by a grant from the Dana Foundation, a private philanthropic organization dedicated to advancing neuroscience and society.
