Human Brain Networks Developing in Adolescence Related to Evolutionary Expansion

PHILADELPHIA – Adolescence marks not only the period of physical maturation bridging childhood and adulthood, but also a crucial period for remodeling of the human brain. A Penn study reveals new patterns of coordinated development in the outer layer of the cerebrum of the human brain and describes how these structural patterns relate to functional networks.

In 2011, Anthony "Tony" Perez was a 22-year-old junior majoring in business administration at Wichita State University. On June 10 his life changed forever. Perez was riding his moped when he was struck by an SUV and rushed to the nearest hospital, Wesley Medical Center. His injuries were so serious that he had only the minimum level of function to breathe and was given only a 5 percent chance of survival.
