  22. 22. The Adolescent Brain is Still<br />Developing<br />During adolescence, the brain is<br />undergoing dramatic transformations<br />In some brain regions, over 50%of<br />neuronal connections are lost<br />Some new connections are formed<br />Net effect is pruning (a loss of neurons)<br />
  23. 23. Adolescent Brain Changes<br />These brain changes are<br />relevant to adolescent<br />behavior<br />Prefrontal cortex (PFC) is<br />pruned; not fully<br />developed until mid-20’s<br />Amygdala (and n.a.) show<br />less pruning and tend<br />prefrontal<br />cortex<br />amygdala<br />JUDGEMENT<br />REWARD SYSTEM<br />

  30. 30. Drugs Hijack the Brain’s<br />Reward Circuitry<br />Immediate effect of drug use is an increase<br />in dopamine<br />Continued use of drugs reduces the brain’s<br />dopamine production.<br />Because dopamine is part of the reward<br />system, the brain is “fooled” that the drug<br />has survival value for the organism.<br />The reward system responds with “drug<br />seeking behaviors”<br />Craving occurs and, eventually, dependence.<br />
  31. 31. WITHDRAWAL OF ALCOHOL AFTER PROLONG ALCOHOL ABUSE<br />(a) Hearing voices?
