Old age begins at 30: Scientists say our brains are not fully grown when we are in their twenties
- People are highly susceptible to psychological problems in their twenties
- This may solve about 30 years age. when the brain reaches full maturity
- No Correct Neurological Definition Of When The Child Becomes An Adult
If your twenty-year-old scams seem childish, stop worrying. Because we really grew up in our 30s.
While we are legally 18 years old, the idea that this is the dawn of adulthood is "increasingly absurd," brain experts said yesterday. Adolescence varies, with some people making the transition faster than others
New insights into how the brain is linked and processed for most of a person's life have major consequences for society, say neurologists. At 18, the brain still undergoes major changes.
Neuroscientists believe that the brain still develops at age 18 and does not reach its full adult status by about 30 years of age
highly susceptible to mental disorders, something that is solved around 30 years old age.
Professor Peter Jones, from Cambridge University, said at a briefing in London: childhood to maturity seems increasingly absurd. This is a much nuanced transition.
"I suppose systems such as the education system, the health system and the legal system make it convenient for oneself, having definitions."
Speaking before an international neurology meeting organized by the Academy of Medical Sciences in Oxford, Professor Jones said: "I think the system is adapting to what is in the visible place that people do not like the caterpillar to become a butterfly .
"There is no childhood and then maturity. People are on their way, they are on a trajectory. "
Young adults may suddenly enter the professional world after school or university, but their brain may take another ten years to reach full maturity
Professor Dr. Daniel Geschwind, from the University of California at Los Angeles, highlights the degree of individual variability in brain development, saying that education systems mistakenly tend to focus on groups rather than individuals.
Professor Geswind adds, "These are bigger questions that go beyond
There are individual trajectories … development has been going on for decades, but it varies depending on the individual."
The meeting will discuss the study of serious psychiatric disorders, and it is known that schizophrenia and other psychotic conditions stem from a complex interplay between genes and the environment
Schizophrenia is usually diagnosed in older teenagers, the risk of its development drastically declining 20's model, which is believed to be associated with brain development.  Advertising  Share or comment on this article:
