From getting drunk at a party, to stealing your clothes, to Xbox gaming into the early hours, teenagers often make what seem like bad decisions. I breakdown why teenagers make misguided decisions and how parents can help them to learn good decision-making skills. Teenagers will often express quite clearly why certain behaviours and actions are not desirable. But put them in a situation where they feel pressure, stressed, or are seeking attention from their peer group, they will start to make...

Why Women Are More Likely To Develop Alzheimer’s Disease

Why are women twice as likely as men to develop Alzheimer’s disease? I discuss some important differences in the way women's brains age and how this increases their risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.

Teenage Brains Are Wired To Learn

We often give teenagers a hard time for being impulsive, emotional outbursts, taking risks, too much screen time, or just because they can’t get out of bed in the morning. But I want to talk about a teenage super-power: their extraordinary capacity for learning. The growth of new brain connections and shedding of unused ones make teens sensation-seeking, learning machines. They learn much faster than adults and what they learn is retained for longer.

Why Sleep Predicts and Prevents Alzheimer’s Disease

 Sleep offers new hope for both predicting and preventing Alzheimer’s disease. Sleep quality deteriorates as we get older. And this is linked to a decline in memory. But in people living with Alzheimer’s disease, the disruption of sleep is far worse, and sleep disturbances start many years before the onset of Alzheimer’s symptoms. This could mean that sleep problems are actually an early warning sign of this disease.

Recent research has gone a step further and shown...
