How to predict the mood of teenagers: psychologists told
Psychologists told how you can predict the mood of adolescents, and accordingly, behavior.
Scientists from the United States decided to test the activity of adolescent brain on MRI.
In this case, the subjects, adolescents, played in a complex video game, where it was necessary to use various emotional images.
As a result, it turned out that young people who during the game demonstrated very low coordination between the brain areas responsible for focused attention, as well as increased coordination between the areas on which mental concentration depends, were prone to depression.
Academics emphasize that this experiment has proven that brain activity can predict severe depression in adolescents.
