The October National Geographic magazine's cover story is on Teenage Brains. Online you can read a great article called Beautiful Brains:
A few researchers began to view recent brain and genetic findings in a brighter, more flattering light, one distinctly colored by evolutionary theory. The resulting account of the adolescent brain—call it the adaptive-adolescent story—casts the teen less as a rough draft than as an exquisitely sensitive, highly adaptable creature wired almost perfectly for the job of moving from the safety of home into the complicated world outside.
Be sure to check out the wonderful photo gallery that goes with the article!
