Have you ever wondered what goes on in the minds of teenagers?  Why they act and behave the way they do?  This Friday on Noon Edition we will be talking with neuroanatomist Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor about the teenage brain.  Taylor will explain how anatomy influences behavior and what causes the way teens think and feel.
