The Neuroanatomical Transformation of the Teenage Brain

Published on Feb 21, 2013

Our brain is made up of cells and every ability we have is the product of those cells. What is going on during our teenage years that accounts for the way teenagers feel, think and behave? This presentation will focus on the neurological transformation of the brain that occurs during the teenage years.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

We all continued to Learn.
Sort of... by Step according the Music we Hear.

"For Trappists, there is beauty in death because it is treated as a natural part of life. That is why Trappists do not try to hide what happens to the body at death or interfere with the natural process of returning it to the earth." - Trappist Caskets website.
Trappist Caskets are produced at the Catholic monastery of New Melleray Abbey in rural Iowa. There, the monks understand casket making as a "work of mercy." Their casket business allows them to be self-sufficient and practice responsible stewardship.
The monks are quoted on the their Trappist Caskets website: "Along with prayer and study, our casket ministry is an extension of our sacred work. We labor quietly with our hands in support of our life of simplicity....here, the life of prayer is imparted into our labor as we observe the call to "pray without ceasing."
The monk's lives are based on the Rule of St. Benedict which requires them to infuse all their activities with prayer and contemplation, whether they are working, eating or studying.
