AGENDA
Excitement!
 Adolescent brain development
 Big messages from PBIS at the High School Level

NEUROSCIENCE
Can provide the technology for understanding
brain functioning and development during
adolescence
Timerlake, Schaal, Steinmetz, 2005
DEVELOPMENT OVER TIME
EMOTIONAL RESPONDING
EMOTIONAL RECOGNITION
Monk et al (2003)
REWARDS CENTER
REWARDS CENTER
Early adolescent show fewer reward signals in the
brain to stimuli. The intensity of rewards must be
higher for early adolescents to feel rewarded
(Sprague, 2008).
WHITE MATTER
ADOLESCENT BRAIN DEVELOPMENT

Physiological and functional differences on
cognition
Amygdala
 Emotional recognition
 Rewards center
 White matter

NEUROPLASTICITY
“… neuroanatomical evidence suggests that
learning and positive experiences help build
complex, adaptive brains”.
The Adolescent Brain: A Work in Progress, Daniel R.Weinberger,
M.D., Brita Elvevåg, Ph.D, Jay N. Giedd, M.D., June 2005
NEUROPLASTICITY

Environmental supports:
Explicitness in instruction
 Explicitness in acknowledgements


Exaggerated supports around decision-making,
responsibility
