Dear ASCers,

The latest podcast from Up Close is now available:

"Hormones in a hurry: Uneasy passages through puberty and adolescence "


Psychiatrist and adolescent health specialist, Prof George Patton,
discusses why puberty -- especially early puberty -- and adolescence can be
so tough, but how most of us survive the journey. Presented by Dr Dyani

"Those parts of the brain that really are involved in that emotional
regulation develop really continuously through the adolescent years through
to the mid-20s. So in a sense there's a bit of a gap. Now that gap probably
allows that creativity and that flourishing cognitively during these years
but it does create this window of vulnerability for  these emotional and
behavioural problems." -- Prof George Patton
