> Young people and drugs, who says yes and who says no, here’s whyé

The research is published in Nature Neuroscience. Observing 1900 mris adolescents, it seems that in those more predisposed to risky behaviour, there are less connections in the area of orbital in the front, and that this could be the reason of these behaviors.

Garavan says that these differences precede the risk behavior, and that may be used in advance.  The area has nothing to do with the area that concerns the AHDH, attention-deficit adhd)à, as it is thought of in the past.

This study is based on the work of the Imagen Consortium, launched by the European Union and conducted by a team of international researchers. Will now be evaluated through magnetic resonance imaging of the brain and  genetic analysis and behavioral, about 2,000 teenage volunteers in Ireland, England, France and Germany.

What do you make of these findings? Certainly it is possible that if we have different characters, even our  brains will be different. Probably a  first violin, is active in different areas of the brain from a mathematical pure, or by a fisherman of corals.

And così a dancer against a biologist. The practical applications for this are very dubious. Researchers tell us that there will be an effect on public health, given that young people, when they die, accidents are often under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

And how? doing all of the scanner of the brain and then inserting in the programs of re-education, at-risk youth? by Stimulating with electrodes in these areas that are not quite active to inhibit the impulsività  doing a lot of small robot through the stimulation of the brain? Apocalyptic scenarios.

Admitted, and that is not granted, (yet all to see, this idea) that you are born predisposed to substance abuse for impulsività, in many texts, c’è già the solution. Patience, affection, education, self-esteem and sense of self-protection, a bit like the advertising; the shampoo… becauseé you’re worth.

But to provide this remedy does not c’è need of magnetic resonance imaging. Parents know when it is lacking, and the teachers also, and unfortunately do not know, often, né each né of the other, how is it to be administered.

This could be a interesting research, instead of sfruculiargli the cucuzza with the scanner.
