A window into adolescence
(University of Delaware) Why do some adolescents take more risks than others? Research from University of Delaware Biomedical Engineer Curtis Johnson and graduate student Grace McIlvain suggests that two centers in the brain, one which makes adolescents want to take risks and the other which prevents them from acting on these impulses, physically mature at different rates and that adolescents with large differences in the rate of development between these two brain regions are more likely to be risk-takers.

AI could play a role in accomplishing that—computer-based machine learning might help doctors to read mammograms more accurately.
